They get blown out into space.
Eh, potayto - potahto.
Air movement happens because of pressure differentials. When we consider the high end of the differential "normal", we call it sucking. When we consider the low end normal or completely disregard the cause, as for wind, we call it blowing. So from the inside of the space craft, where the higher atmospheric pressure is the norm, it sure is sucking. For an observer on the outside, it's blowing.
Move on, no nits to pick here.
