    These are files iTunes uses to store your music database into, album artwork, etc. They're essentially preference files. The iTunes Media folder is where the actual music files live.

    If you don't use iTunes, then you can delete them. If you do use iTunes, you should leave them alone. They're tiny files anyway.

    Even if you delete them, and don't use iTunes, the next update is likely to recreate the files.
