They're t-nuts. Don't have a pic handy, but they definitely have a larger diameter on the bottom 1/32" or so. Sorry...

Snowboard inserts all have a larger diameter flat base on them so they don't pull thru the core of the board too easily. It helps to distribute the pressure over a wider surface. If they were just a single diameter they would pull out too easy.
