These were in the slab for the front and rear porches on a 1920's home.

There were a couple in the top row of the block walls separating "rooms" in the basement as well.

I tried to view the other end of the slabs but these were in the way on the both porches.

I have done more houses built in the 20's than I can count, but I have never seen that technique. Based on your description of the basement areas also, I suspect that they were installed as conduit to run something through later on. Admittedly, that's a guess.
