Lightbulb What is /dev/.udev.tdb?


I recently tried a rootkit check on my slack system and it returned that I should check this directory. From what I have understood, udev is some sort of dynamic updater for devices (correct me if im wrong ), if such was the case then why does rootkit checker require me to inspect this directory?
