Default Remove 3rd row seats from 2016 Odyssey

I have a 2016 Odyssey and am trying to remove the 3rd row seats for more storage space for a camper conversion. Luckily, in this model the loaded spring is part of the seat assembly so I don’t have to mess with that. There are 6 bolts attaching each of the 60/40 split seats. Problem is, one bolt on each has no nut. Instead there’s a kind of rivet. Does anyone have experience removing this? Do you drill or grind it out? Does it serve any other function? Is it threaded so you can replace with a bolt afterwards? I’m assuming Honda added this as a failsafe if the other bolts got loosened, but not sure. Maybe they just wanted to make things difficult for the novice.

Answered my own question. These are guidance pins. The seats just need to be pulled out very straight or will feel anchored by them. Might take a little force. Do not pry or the sheet metal could get bent.
