What are "#sql" files in the MySQL data dir?

Hello,

After doing indexing of a relatively large database (4 million records), I
see some files that all begin with "#sql-" in my data directory. They are
identical in size to the regularly named data files in that directory.

Are they some backup or temporary files that were left behind? Is it safe
to delete them?

Thanks.
