    If I am to make a guess, I think only the red circled ones are air intake because we know the one on the main smoke stack is air intake. The one on the hanger is of the same dimension and most importantly it is always "opened" just like the main air intake. On the other hand the others (yellow circled) have hatches that can be closed could be some kind of maintenance hatches for unknown purpose.

    I think we can't really guess what kind of output they have by size of the exhaust alone, but the main point is that there certainly are exhausts that correspond with where we know the auxiliary GTs are situated in the hull

    I don't think we can rule out the yellow circled rectangles before a more zoomed in photo is available. On this photo of DDG 167 an air intake grill with a hatch is visible:

    Of course, given their small size they could also be vents for some purpose other than aft generator intake.
