If you are talking about the white ones, They are called LSI (liquid submersion indicators). If the are exposed to moisture they turn red. Apple will then use this to refuse warranty support.

For avoiding shorts when plugging and unplugging cables or to protect from static electricity? Would it make a difference once the phone is assembled?
