Cross drilled banjo bolts

Is there any reason to cross drill banjo bolts? I pulled them out of of a caliper pad rotor replcement. I cannot figure why they would drill a 2nd hole through the banjo bolt. More fluid transfer ?

If I had to guess, I would say the 2 smaller holes would carry the volume of the larger hole in the hollow of the bolt. Also 2 smaller crossdrilled holes would be a bit stronger than one large one. So the strength of the bolt would be less comprimised. Not sure if thats why, but it makes sense to me.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
