Comment (by jscipione):

 They are the back and forward keys for the browser, at least they work in
 this respect in Windows. Newer ThinkPads have replaced those keys with
 Page Up and Page Down. Anyway, when I worked on the ThinkPad keyboard
 layouts I included those keys and mapped them to 0x9a and 0x9b
 respectively. I don't remember why, perhaps I copied the existing IBM
 ThinkPad layout file here. Anyway, you can remap those keys to make them
 do something else, or, if you are really ambitious, you can make them work
 as media keys to go backwards and forwards in Web+ instead.
