What exactly do you want to know?

If you refer to "what is the purpose of pluginlib": The pluginlib package provides tools for writing and dynamically loading plugins using the ROS build infrastructure.

I do not want to be rude. Are you asking when pluginlib architecture is used? If yes, then you can have look at navigation stack setup, specifically move_base. Which global planner to use, can be configured in launch files and corresponding library will get loaded. Pluginlib allow to do that.
