Unexplained holes in ceiling

We have found 2 perfectly round and symmetrical holes in the ceiling of our first floor closet, which is located on the underside of our staircase (it has a 45 degree slanted ceiling). The holes are about 1" in diameter and have pushed the drywall outward as if something fell through the holes (but nothing did). The holes occurred about 3 months apart from one another and there is no explanation. Our builder stated he had never seen anything like it. Does anyone have any ideas?

Are you sure that someone (a child?) hasn't just punched the holes with a broom handle, etc. and pulling the handle back out (or gravity) has the broken pieces appearing to be pushed or falling outward?

Only logical explanation that I can think of, and exactly what it sounds like to me. Is there something in the closet or house with a handle that matches the holes?

Should be easy to repair.

Good Luck!
