Indeed. These are startup related files.

The lua files are probably not that different but indeed the other ones 
are bytecode files and normally read (with the lua files as fallbacks in 
case of a failure) which is more efficient (a =lua, c = luatex bytecode 
(5.3), b = luajit bytecode (hybrid 5.1 / 5.2), d = luametatex bytecode 
(5.4). At some point the jit variant might be dropped and in the long 
run we might only have luametatex.
