According to the creator of the Enterprise-D these belong to some kind of observation gallery.



Andrew Probert even put some people there to illustrate the idea. So I think it's fair to say that the TNG Technical Manual got that wrong with the deflector idea.

Besides, that window area is sometimes lit and sometimes not (depending which VFX model was in use).
