Is news a plugin?

I am merely asking this since I am in need to make some changes or should I say addons to the news create and news modify template in admin. Basically what I want to know is that will those changes be erased when  updating to newer versions from git? I know to never touch the core files.
e107 version Version 2.1.6 (git)

The news functionality is a bit of a hybrid between core and plugin. The news templates are placed in the e107_plugins/news folder and can thus be overridden as with any other plugin template.

Using the e_admin addon, you can hook into the admin area. Example here: https://github.com/e107inc/e107/blob/master/e107_plugins/_blank/e_admin.php
