Yes, those are your low point drains. There will also be a drain plug to remove on your hot water tank.

A 1 1/16 socket at the bottom of the tank, which also is your anode, at least in most units.

One is a low point drain the other is your overflow. You might want to ensure they didn't pit the low point valve on the wrong line. It has nothing to do with your water heater

I have the Hemisphere 300 BH. It has the same set up as yours

A word of caution on draining the hot water tank by removing the anode...

Be sure to relieve the pressure by pulling the relief valve lever until it no longer hisses and drains water. If you have pressure in the hot water tank while removing the anode, it will probably shoot out of the tank pretty quickly (don't ask me why I know . The anode weighs enough to create a big bruise (not to mention getting hit by hot water if you're doing it shortly after shutting it off)...

this is a bad setup for the overflow in the fresh water system as mine also started to flow well before the tank was actually full and it's almost impossible to haul fresh water as most of it will run out the overflow. I believe the overflow should be trapped to some extent by placing it above the level of the fresh water tank.
