This is usual boilerplate code for using the GObject system (which is
distributed with GLib).  It is fully documented, see:

The function call tells you that the GstPluginFeature object type is
derived from GstObject (GST_TYPE_OBJECT).  "Abstract" means that you
cannot create instances of that type; it is supposed to act as base
class for further derived types (in this case: GstElementFactory,
GstTypeFindFactory and GstIndexFactory).
