You can tap it, but it wont be locking then. I have tapped them and put fastener in with locktite. Be sure they are correct starting hole size for the tap. I'm pretty sure they are rolled threads from MFG, then "crushed" for the locking feature.

Default Threadless screw

That for one of them newfangled threadless screws. Torque to 0 in lbs.
Seriously, that's why I check every one with a screw and boelube.

I'm guessing it was drilled out and bits of rivet remain in the holes.
