Sort of. Generally if an app knows it needs a component you've
downloaded, it moves or copies it to a location it manages (there are
standard locations for such things too) to be sure you have access to
it. On OS X the Downloads folder is considered volatile so leaving
something there that serves as an extension of an app's functionality is
bad practice.
