These files are included in both my /etc/named.conf and 
/usr/share/doc/bind-x.x.x/named.conf.default which I probably used as a 
template years ago. I'm no dns expert but you'd probably need these 
files when accessing root servers directly without use of forwarders.

I'm also using ddns and have my zone files in 
Selinux is enabled and I don't see any additional bind-related rules in 
my local policy or
