Explanation:
"XXX includes this file in order not to have to hardcode these keys in the source code"
It refers to embedding keys or other data within the source code, a practice to be avoided whenever possible for it means having no flexibility to alter them.
The reference to "poner a fuego" arises from the branding of an animal, which also leaves marks that can not be modified later.
