Exhaust pipe dripping water

I'm wondering if there are factory installed drip holes in the exhaust pipe between the engine and the muffler? I have two places that drip right at what appear to be joints in the pipe.

Only place I've ever seen drip holes in an exhaust system is the muffler. Usually hole at each end near the crimp or welded end.
If your is leaking at a joint where two pipes come togather via a clamp or flange, it may just need to be tightened. If it's at a bend or somewhere at a place where the pipe was bent (sometimes there will be "crinkles" from the bend), then you have a hole that should NOT be there.
May need to get it welded over or replaced.

Exhaust pipe dripping water? Oh, you must be referring to the new water cooled exhaust system........ ooops, sorry, couldn't stop my thumbs from saying that.
I have had drips out the tail pipe end while idling after first crank up in the mornings. Condensation I guess.
