It's possible they are that type of feature; they could work wit the studs that have the spring loaded pin backing, rather than a round flat one. I have never heard of, nor seen it, but I am admittedly only an avid amateur when it comes to black tie - and really only jut getting started. However, I did a lot of research and looking, including, just for fun, looking at a $1200 Tom Ford evening shirt, prior to my wedding, and never came across round holes. More telling, there is no mention of it on the Black Tie Guide, to my recollection, so I suspect it is an oddity, rather than a high end feature. Regardless, your shirt and studs must be compatible, so short of finding new studs, which can be a real pain, or a new shirt, altering the button holes seems the only option to me.
