Badger 2040 Files and SMT-PADS

My Badger 2040 arrived today and having played with the installed software I’m very pleased with the purchase. Very clear screen and impressive build quality.
I’ve downloaded all the example files from Github at:

Am I correct in understanding that most of these are contained with the Badger 2040 special UF2?

I notice there are 10 SMT-PADS along the left hand edge at the back of the board marked I2C, power, UART etc. Can these be used for soldered wires/connection sockets/pins?
