I think the holes are for cooling the pads rather than cooling the rotors. It gives the pads a pause to vent the heat. But the brake heat depends a lot on driving style. An impatient driver will have to brake many more times than a relaxed driver. I did once experience brake fading on my (then) Fiat Croma, the brakes weren't really up to urgent driving.
