What is `/var/lib/vz/template/qemu` for?

My question is pretty simple, what is `/var/lib/vz/template/qemu` for?
I know that `/var/lib/vz/template/iso` is meant to hold the ISOs that you can see from the Web GUI, but what is the qemu for?
Is it meant to hold special files? Can I use it to try and compile new images from scratch?

Thanks for any help!
