No, it is the compiled module. It will be created during the build

You do not have to write a Makefile. You only have to write a Modules.am
file, and bootstrap / configure will generate the Makefile (if you added
your folder to the configure.ac file).

These are intermediate build results. You do not need to do anything
with them. They are built from source files and linked to make the .so
file which is the real VLC plugin.
