There were some that were listed as conflicted copies, obviously from accidentally having multiple copies of the library open, and I deleted them without worrying but I have no idea what, if anything, I should do with these files.

Invalid authors - metadata.db.tmp - metadata.db.tmp
Invalid authors - metadata.db.tmp-journal - metadata.db.tmp-journal
Invalid authors - metadata.opf - metadata.opf
Invalid authors - metadata2.db - metadata2.db
Invalid authors - metadata_pre_restore.db - metadata_pre_restore.db

Is is normal for Check Library to kick these back as errors or are they files I should get rid of or just ignore them?

Guessing from those names, I would say someone aborted/crashed a 'Restore Library' attempt
there are exactly 2 FILES in the main Library folder:
metadata.db, metadata_db_prefs_backup.json

All the rest are folders
