Comment (by thomasd3):

 Looking at this, I found the something: I have a tool called jBridgeM
 (it's used to wrap x86 audio plugins in a x64 container) and can be found
 here: https://jstuff.wordpress.com/jbridgem/

 It is the one that installed the plist files with maxfiles / maxproc, not
 the OS update

 The content of the file is:

 [thomas:/Library/LaunchDaemons] $ cat limit.maxfiles.plist
 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
 <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
 <plist version="1.0">
