Golib folder in home

I am using LinuxMint 20.3 and go1.18.4. I just started with my Go journey and I am trying to understand what exactly modules are. I decided to take a look at some modules which come with the Go installation in the GOPATH folder. I realized that two folders were created in my home directory automatically, go and golib. Both the folders contain bin and pkg and look something like this.

As you can see, the mod folder is different for go and golib. I am curious as to why there are two folders in the first place, and what exactly they are. Thanks in advance.
