Yes, The plugin editor is currently limited to(in 2.5 at least) editing  
the actual plugin php file.
So It'll edit my-plugin.php but not my-plugin-functions.php(If the  
functions file is not a plugin in itself..), and not my-plugin.css

I personally do not use the file editors, But i can see some people would  
like to, I recon it should be able to edit any file in the plugins folder
