Not really, I think that they just scrape the rating from the Amazon review site. This is a practice that Amazon disallow in their terms and conditions, and have been trying to stop, according to their own blog post it doesn't really work properly now any more: https://getaawp.com/blog/note-missing-star-ratings/

The fact is that the product advertising API just does not return a star rating, instead it gives you an iframe URL so that you can display the reviews. A long time ago we thought about doing something similar and just scraping the rating result from that URL but decided not to because it seems better not to deliberately do things that might get our customers barred from using the API in the long run.

For the same reason the plugin does not cache images
