One possibility is that the installed plug-ins failed to load due to
some reason (missing dependencies - possible if feature wasn't declaring
its dependencies correctly or some other runtime bundle load failure).
To differentiate the load failure from install failure, see whether the
new plug-ins are listed in the file pointed to by the value of the property
file of installation1.
If you see your plug-ins listed there then it is likely a load failure.
