Mysterious files after build


I'd like to know more about some files, that are left after MariaDB build
in Fedora.
I do not ship them, however I haven't found any explanation from previous
maintainers. I gathered some clues and thoughts about them.

Questions are: What are those files and what they does?; Is it safe to ship
them?; Should I start to ship them?

 - you (MariaDB) ship this file in client package

 - this script creates the MySQL system tables and starts the server.

 - FS files first-bytes recoginiton?

 - those shouldn't be needed on systemd OSs ?

 - you (mariaDB) do not ship this file
