What do I do with the plastic "flapper" plugs inside the inlet and outlet nipples on my new waterheater, model 153.318132?

My assumption is that they come out because they would create a pressure drop through the water heater, however the design is so detailed, being made up of sleeves, orings, flapper valves etc, that it does not look like an ordinary cleanliness plug.
