What is the purpose of these? Should I... A. tie them somehow? B. Let them dangle? C. Remove them? D. Other?

You tie them so snow and wind and cold can't get blown in, then again those are features for cold activity clothing. I guess...

Just pull the string all the way out and they're regular pants again.

those would be nice if you wanted to tuck the pants into some high boots. Otherwise I am sure Rambo uses those drawstrings to strangle people.

Ankle drawstrings are pretty standard on military uniforms (BDU's), as well as ski/snowboard gear...

I have a pair of Damir Doma pants with something similar and I'll tie it so they have more of a blouse effect than a break.
