these are regular lua files

The last two, Ok.

Indeed. These are startup related files.

That make sense, lua, (lub), luc, lud but even lua files are different
or do you mean that luc/lud are generated (compiled) from lua and then
contex don't read them only luc/lud?
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.
