The plugin can output silence (zeros) until there is valid output available. (Again, it's up to you to know how your algorithms behave and what is considered "valid output".) However because that isn't useful output and delays the audio, the plugins can report that as their latency and the host may do something useful with that information. (For example with offline renders it could leave out those initial silent samples from the output file.)
