From a software authorship perspective, there is no difference between files with the extensions .mpd, .ldr, and .dat. They are all valid LDraw files, per the specification, and they all might contain multiple submodels.

Historically, MLCad has saved files containing multiple submodels (MPDs) with a .mpd extension, and files with a single model under a .ldr extension. Bricksmith on the Mac has always created all new files with a .ldr extension. Both editors ignore the extension when opening files.
