Where does my URDF for the plugins?

When I include a plugin in my URDF or xacro file in between the <plugin> and <\plugin> tags, where does it find the plugin from?
If I have a ROS package with plugins built from source as well as installed via apt-get and want to use the ROS package installed from source (maybe because it contains my custom changes), how should I tell my URDF or xacro file to look for the plugin inside the package built from source and not the one installed via apt-get?

hello, you have to install your custom ROS package and source them. After beeing sourced, all ros related scripts should be able to find your custom plugins.
