They are for the System Event Archive feature. From the 12.2SX configuration guide -

The SEA maintains two files in the bootdisk, using up to 32 MB. These files contain the most recent messages recorded to the log:

 

sea_log.dat—Applications store the most recent system events in this file.

 

sea_console.dat—The most recent console messages are stored in this file.
