The holes on your green tomatoes are probably too irregular to be made by the tomato fruitworm (corn earworm), though they make similarly clean holes, so they are probably from a turtle, bird, or even slugs. The "pattern", we suspect, is coincidence.

Do cut them open and look for any other evidence inside.
