Strange php-fpm ini parsing


This is probably Off Topic . But I think most people use php-fpm for php
with nginx and thought people here could really help

I have a strange issue of php.fpm parsing a file ending in .ini whereas
this .ini file doesnt have anything to do with php

as per nginx error log :

*26 FastCGI sent in stderr: “PHP message: WARNING: You have errors in
INI file
on line 1!”

I renamed the file and the error was gone .

So the question is - does php-fpm look for files ending in .ini ; if so
to disable that and does this default behavior slow down things ?
