OS X Sites folder permissions and a question about flags on the files in bash. What gives?

Finally, this one is driving me nuts: What's the extra flag at the end of the file for in Terminal? When I check file permissions with ls -al some files show as -rwxr-xr-x+, others show as -rwxr-xr-x@, and some are -rwxr-xr-x with no + or @ appended. Nothing I've been able to find online explains what the @ or + flags mean, or why they may be appended to some files but not others. I've never seen similar flags on any Linux system I've used. Should I even care?
