Well not really, calibre has a modular design which makes it easy to add features. However this requires the 3rd party tool to get released with calibre. A plugin architecture allows indep developers to enhance the feature of a product without requiring a release or and update to include that plugin. A devloper can just install the plugin and integrate with the product.

Good examples is WordRMR or OOo FBTool that plugs into OpenOffice.
