Hi ClamAV Developers, Users

I have compiled the ClamAV source code  on Mac OS X and  investigating
libclamav.dylib and libclamav.7.dylib internal files information for  my
curiousity.. Surprisingly   i got below info when i ran grep  with some
*admin-macbookPro-2:clamav-devel-0.99.2 tringappsinc$ grep -ir "This file
was created by ClamAV for internal use and should not be run"*

*Binary file ./libclamav/.libs/libclamav.7.dylib matches*

*Binary file ./libclamav/.libs/libclamav.dylib matches*

*Binary file ./libclamav/.libs/libclamav_la-rebuildpe.o matches*

*Binary file ./libclamav/.libs/libclamav_la-upx.o matches*

i still don't understand why those above binary files contains that
pattern(that i mentioned above) even  single source file of ClamAV
Codebase. from where this pattern appending to .dylib files.

i am so curious to understand things behind it. is there any logic ClamV
Internally using?

Could please  any one of you to help me on this
