those are resource forks from your files - possibly maintained by your (likey very old?) editor.
First, is seems that you are not creating the tar ball correctly - the correct way is to use R CMD build which should not include resource forks nor files on the ignore list.
That said, if for some reason you intend to create is by hand (not recommended), you may want to set COPYFILE_DISABLE=1 so it doesn't include resource forks.
