partitions – After doing a readback of my mediatek device in sp flash tool, why are some files in .bin format, others are in.img format, and others are blank?


After doing a readback of my mediatek device in sp flash tool, why are some files in .bin format, others are in.img format, and others are blank?

For e.g. the preloader is saved as .bin format, (as with logo.bin) and the boot/recovery/system partitions use .img

What format are the PGPT/ (partition tables) in? as they dont seem to have a file type?

Please see attached screenshot enter image description here
