I'm guessing those holes are to attach a lip, but seems like a good place for a crack to start. Took of the bumper yesterday and applied some dry wall joint tape and 3M Bumper Repair on the inside. Seems to be holding up for now. Ill get it replaced if it gets worse.
I'm not saying they just form cracks. But they are clearly a bit weaker in that spot because a bunch of people seem to have a crack in the same spot.
