Since you pulled the radiator from an automatic , the bungs are to attach the transmission cooler lines as the radiator has a seperate passage for the automatic transmission. You will need to purchase some plugs to screw into these passages to stop your leak.

They don't sell them for this reason, but what I would do is determine what the thread size is and purchase a drain plug to match and screw in.
