Usage of HPC (high performance computing) packages

In my current investigations of netcdf problems in compilation of a solar system software package, I see many netcdf packages labeled as HPC that seem to relate to high performance computing as far as I can tell. From what I see in the docs these files apply to a computer “cluster”. As such, I think they would not have any use on a single computer and would be related to parallelization between computers comprising a cluster; not parallelization between cpus on a single computer.

I work with a 12 core single computer. Would I be right in deleting any packages labeled as hpc loaded on my single computer?
