Holes are fully developed without a seed to push it open.

They aren't truly seedless. They have those white to translucent, small seeds that are really just the outer coats of seeds. Occasionally you will see a black, fully formed seed. Also, seedless watermelons are hybrids of seeded and seedless varieties and the fruit still tries to produce seed, hence the spaces.
