it can be that the folders are just part of wine or was already there before wine but you only noticed them now. do you want to uninstall wine? have you already tried to?

are you taking about the .programname folders? If so, those are hidden directories and contain your user's configuration files for those programs. You would be wise not to delete those, and to just check the option in your file explorer to hide hidden folders.
