xxx.yyy.distupgrade files in /etc/apt/sources.list - what are these?

I have just used do-release-upgrade to upgrade my system to xubuntu
17.10.

It looks as this upgrade has created some oddly named files in
/etc/apt/sources.list, these are:-

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 78 Dec 3 16:12 owncloud.list.distUpgrade
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 48 Dec 3 16:12 syncthing.list.distUpgrade

Can anyone tell me what these files are for?

Not sure but owncloud was not packaged by Debian for Debian Stretch
(current stable) which may imply that you don't have a new version for
this application.
