Right, those are not installed by MacPorts like most ports' launchd plists; those are installed by avahi itself.

I have filed a bug report for you with the developers of avahi:


It's not a major problem, though, that these files are executable. There's merely nothing in them that could be executed, so there's no reason for them to have the execute bit.
