I must confess, I've never seen such a thing, nor even heard of it until this thread...
No, they run through a tunnel. They don't actually penetrate the deck, they are just covered up. It does look as though the tunnels could be quite a water scoop if you punched through a green wave. Could be quite a jet of water shooting out the back end! I don't imagine it would happen very often though.
