I’d guess the reason for all the holes is to allow for mounting the rings in a few different locations to accommodate different scopes, similar to what a pic rail does.
I understand that reasoning, but it seems to me that bases that allow multiple positions for the rings could be attached with a LOT fewer holes.

Eight screw holes in the receiver ring, eight more in the rear of the receiver plus a huge hole in the center of the back ring of the receiver.
WHO would NEED that to mount a scope on a Mauser?? Plus the thought that with that many holes what might that do to the funtional strength of the action?

I think there's a reason Mauser made their rifles out of steel, and not Swiss Cheese....
