Advice: Don't call it that.
They're just plain-text files.
That said, while they do exist internally, they don't drop, and even if they did, using them would flag you as a cheater because that algorithm determines the stat points you should have as a function of your level only.
What do you mean by don't call it that? They have specific artwork/icons assigned to them (except for one potion that doesn't have an icon and just shows up as invisible in your inventory), their functions are properly tied to what they're supposed to do, their tooltips are correct, they work properly, and they don't require you to manually edit or add any files. As far as I'm concerned, that means they've been programmed into the game. Even if it's just copy/pasting a plain-text file or a set of code and typing the words for the name, description, etc in the proper fields and linking it with a visual.
Unless you're just talking semantics and you have a very definite definition of something being "programmed". All HTML pages are just plain-text files. That doesn't mean the scripts inside them weren't programmed in. If you really want to go into semantics, every "script" is, for all intense and purposes, a plain-text file that is read by another program and interpreted to do something. Hell, Java is technically scripting and not programming because it runs in the JVM.
