Were they covered and moved? What year did this take place?

They were covered due to noise considerations.

I believe this happened just before the polar ice voyage

I think Kevin's got it right. The photo of the Nautilus coming into New York harbor at the conclusion of her polar mission shows the casing flood holes closed over.
