NVRAM is a small amount of memory that your computer uses to store certain settings and access them quickly. PRAM (Parameter RAM) stores similar information.
Every time the system starts up and macOS is launched, it will load the necessary KEXT files
and then creates a cache to load them faster each time macOS loads.

NVRAM (nonvolatile random-access memory) is a small amount of memory that your computer uses to store certain settings and access them quickly. PRAM (Parameter RAM) stores similar information, and the steps for resetting NVRAM and PRAM are the same. Settings that can be stored in NVRAM include sound volume, display resolution, startup-disk selection, time zone, and recent kernel panic information.
The settings stored in NVRAM depend on your Mac and the devices that you’re using with your computer. If you experience issues related to these settings or others, resetting NVRAM might help. For example, if your computer starts up from a disk other than the one selected in Startup Disk preferences, or a question mark icon briefly appears before your computer starts up, you might need to reset NVRAM
Every time the system starts up and macOS is launched, it will load the necessary KEXT (KernelExtension) files and then creates a cache to load them faster each time macOS loads. Sometimes when you make a change to your hardware or install an update for macOS the caches needs to be updated which will happen automatically by the macOS while the update is installing but in some cases you might need to rebuild caches for various reasons.
If you have more than one version on macOS installed on your computer you will notice that when you right click on a file and when you choose “Open With” menu there are different versions of a similar application being listed as the applications capable of opening the selected file.
