That is not something an official MySQL build would do. Consult with the
person (or group) that compiled your binaries.
Now, if you have enabled --innodb-file-per-table and if you have named
your table '1' then that file is probably '1.ibd'. That would be
expected. But that seems unlikely based on your other details.
Did you also enable a separate undo log, perhaps? Although if you had,
it should be 'undo1' not just '1'
So, that simple '1' file also seems unusual to me.
