Is it okay to expose .yml or .install files to public?

As per my knowledge the static files like css/js inside core/modules etc should be read by http server user. So normally I give read permission recursively to http user for directories like core, theme, modules etc. But these directory contains some .yml or .install files e.g drupal/web/core/modules/user/user.install which gets downloaded automatically when someone visits my site .

So is it okay to expose those files to public ? and what steps can be taken to avoid it ?

Note: Drupal default .htaccess may take care of these thing but what about other servers like nginx ?
