HOW-TO:Share libraries using MySQL: Wiki Edition
#94
That happens during the export/import process when you move your library over to MySQL. Those are basically some of the backup files that were used to recreate the library on the MySQL server. They are no longer needed since the library has since been reimported, but they're handy as a backup incase something ever goes wrong. On most OSes, the period will make the folder invisible, so that it's not in the way.

I used to hate this, actually. I found it messy to have extra metadata files and folders all over the place. However, it really makes rebuilding the library easier. Even doing something like changing the files over to another server is easier with the exported data.

Still, yeah, you can delete them, and there should even be some tools that can seek out those folders and nuke them. What OS are you on?
