I see in the examples folder of the dnf docs (in github) that there are examples for both plugins and extensions. My question is are they same ? Or how they are used ?

I think this page explains the difference between plugins and extensions

  1. plugins to DNF which extend functionality of the system’s DNF installation.
  2. extension applications that embed DNF (by importing its Python modules) to perform specific package management tasks.
