That'll be the carb warming fitted to stop carb icing. As you said just
clamp the pipes when removing the carbs. Any air lock should clear itself
before next winter comes and its needed.

The service manual doesn't bother to mention it but I've got a coolant
pipe attached to the carburettors.
Do I have to drain the coolant before I can remove the carbs ?
Can I cheat by clamping the pipes ?
Will this create an airlock in the carb when I reassemble or will it
