Default Distributor Question

I was poking around this evening looking for the bilge pump, found someone cut the wire to it, and noticed that the distributor appears to have two wires hanging off the side. The wires have covered slide connectors at the ends and are not hooked up to anything. The engine obviously works and I have not noticed anything funny (seems to run smooth and all) so I am curious as to what these may be for?

EDIT: Oh probably helpful if I tell you what kind of engine it is. I have the 3.0L Alpha 1 Gen 2 (1996 Maxum 1700).

probably the wires used to turn the advance off so that the boat can be timed properly...
