I did a tear down of a 2.9 today. Noticed the water ports in the rear of the gasket were never removed. Is that supposed to be that way?

If there is a matching water jacket port in the head and block then there should be a hole in the gasket.
You will often find that the head has no such port at that location, which is why the gasket has no hole.

This is one of the main ports. Aprox 1inch square.
