If those holes get any real moisture exposure (I'm thinking from outside), I don't think the duct tape will hold up long term. I think you would be better off using some kind of caulk or other similar substance that goes on as a gel and dries to a rubbery texture. I would also recommend sealing the holes from the outside, maybe with roofing tar. You might also try to deal with the rust which undoubtedly lurks on the outside of those holes before sealing. Rust never sleeps!

Dan, I was thinking about using caulking. I was just concerned that the caulking would fall through the holes.

My plan is to do roofing tar on the outside first, then caulk on the inside. That way the tar will prevent the caulk from going through. Any hole that seems too big to put goop alone, I will put a small piece of metal or plastic over the hole first, then goop! Some holes may not be accessible from below, in which case you just have to do the inside alone.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

I had good luck using Great Stuff expandible foam. Let it foam out of the top of the hole + trim when dry.

I'm going to rip off the tape and use some black silicone.

Nope. For some reason its not letting me attach pictures. I've notified the administrator. I don't understand why someone else can but not me. Hmmm.
