The indexpositiontable file extension is related to Spotlight, an indexing process of Mac OS X (macOS).

Whenever an USB flash disk is plugged to a Mac computer, Spotlights creates two hidden folders .trashes and .spotlight-V100 on it.

The indexpositiontable file is created inside the .spotlight-V100 folder.  These files are most likely used only for indexing purposes.

This indexpositiontable file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
