What do I do with these extra straps on the Dreamwear mask?

I just got the mask shipped to me today. I tried the full face mask. The silicone hole for the nose and mouth are surprisingly comfortable and it held up to the pressure of the "mask test" function on the Air Sense 10 Auto and showed that the seal was good. No leaks even with a little stubble on my face.

However, I also got some additional medium nasal pillows because I intended to use the nasal pillow part only. I figured out how to put those on and they're fine. What do I do with these magnetic clips from the full face mask part, however? They're still attached to the mask straps and the full face part has been removed. I see that the magnetic attachments could obviously be taken off and I guess maybe the remaining velcro loop pieces stuck together can be strapped around the lower back of my head? Is that the way it is supposed to go when using the nasal pillows only?

There is a different set of straps depending on if you have full face or nasal mask in the dream wear.
