Default Red lenses in door panels

Quick question....the front doors on my 04 Bonneville GXP have two red lenses mounted in them. Is there supposed to be bulbs behind either of these lenses, or are they place in the door for looks only? I hate tearing a door panel off of a car to find out these are simply reflectors.....seems like the panels never go back on and stay quite the same afterwards.
Thanks,
Gary

I believe those are just reflectors.

Just reflectors. They are a NHTSA requirement and are set at an angle so when the door is open they face directly rearward.

There are ones that light up, but they are a smoked color lens.
