I have very little knowledge of mysql, but my understanding is it's
just a naming convention. CentOS uses mysql.sock for its mysqld
service, and some other distributions use mysqld.sock.

It's just another method applications use to connect to mysql.

look at /etc/my.cnf to see where yours is configured to be.
