I've searched sources a bit, and found that GLib library has some code that
creates similar xml files named "user-extension-%s.xml". Particular function
name is "g_desktop_app_info_set_as_default_for_extension()" which is
an implementation that is called by "g_app_info_set_as_default_for_extension()".
So any application that calls "g_app_info_set_as_default_for_extension()",
creates such XML files.

For example, Firefox does that when one presses "Set as default browser" button.
To make it create files again, press "Make default..." button in the settings.
I suspect this is the way files were created on my machine.
