Those clips are held in place by the rubber seal on the vertical part of the door. You'll have to open the window to fit them.
They secure the end of the deflector. The deflector is attached to the clip with a small plastic push pin.

Are all Prelude doors predrilled for the clips? In particular, how about a JDM 5th gen?

To expand on this for a 5g, i fitted my OEM deflectors last night...

Clips fitted roughly in place under the outer rubber
Image

The two end ones are easier than the middle ones to go under the rubber, the middle ones can be a pain
Image

The middle ones need to go all the way in like this
Image

this is wrong, it's not in all the way for example
Image

Once the rubber is pushed back, check the rubber underneath as this pops out easily too
Image

all fitted
Image

when you go to screw the deflector back on and the clips need moving, you can carefully push/pull them into place with small long pliers
Image

and fitted
Image

much better
