"Yes it is.

Here is an explanation of what they are for."

"You can safely delete them and they will never appear again. I did so over 2 years ago and never saw them regenerated again as some people predict.

I'm not sure what kind of customization they are supposed to store, but after deleting them I haven's observed any change anywhere related to appearance.

Most likely they are just as useless as notorious thumbs.db files. But those you can easily disable system-wide."
