[Lazarus] Can .compiled files be safely removed?

I am trying to test a fpc+lazarus file package for cross compilation
on Windows (see thread "Compliments") and the downloaded set contains
a lot of *.compiled files.
These contain unwanted absolute paths to the original location of
internal files and I want to remove these .compiled files.
Is that possible without breaking the functionality of the system?

I looked at this wiki page for info:

Here the .compiled files are mentioned in connection to subversion or
git as:
"These files are regenerated by the IDE or by a build so do not need
to be stored"

Does this mean that they are not used by FPC/Lazarus once the build
(of what?) has been completed and can safely be removed also in the
project dir tree?

The files in question are located below these directories:

So they are all Lazarus files.
