I go up a drill size and large chamfer after that, had too many failures in our early days across the exhaust bridge.

Only necessary if your bike has an exhaust bridge. The KDX does not.

No, no drilling required. Lots of 2t bikes have a narrow bridge in the cylinder wall that runs down the middle of the exhaust port. Yours does not. The extra holes are for a little extra cooling and lubrication of the exhaust bridge so it doesn't expand and tear up the piston and/or cylinder plating.
