With respect to the 2 wires you refer to,. I've been unable to locate any reference to them in any of my manuals. As to grounding the chassis or using the harness ground, I've always provided both a harness ground and a chassis ground. This will all but guarantee you'll always have a ground. I'll continue looking into the wiring you mentioned.
