domestic fridges with heat dissipation on the sides

I have recently bought 3 domestic fridges and freezers for my house - each of them is dissipating the heat through the sides of the unit....(the sides get really warm) and the installation instructions says that the cut-out space on the sides must be equal to the width of the units + 1/4".....I am wondering how these units dissipate the heat -is it really through the sides walls?????

I did considering to add some extra insulation on the sides but this might actually not be beneficial - considering that I would then be preventing the heat dissipation.........

So the big question is if marine fridges and freezers are using the same heat dissipation system as the domestic types?
