These objects are used when generating the snapshots. If your table is
large, or if your article on the publisher is different from the article on
the subscriber (horizontal or vertical partitioning - in other words a
different number of rows or columns), SQL Server chooses to replicate from
views (called sync objects) instead of the underlying base tables.

If your replication is not active then you can drop these views. Otherwise if you drop the views, it will get affect one the replication snapshot is getting synced.

These system views are used during the snapshot process. Instead of deleting these views, You could assign them to the db_reader role.
