I misunderstood your question. The part suffix "C" designates there were two revisions prior to so the square hole may have been added later.
The square hole engages a tang punched out of the valve cover. It serves as a drain back for oil that might get blown out the cover and into the vent. I don't have my NAA handy to check but if yours doesn't have the tang, the new gasket should still work.
