That looks more like a java fern than anubias, so yes, it would be roots. They develop from nodes on the leaf, and eventually turn into plantlets that can drop off of the mother plant.
Thats not an anubias its Java fern, possibly Microsorum pteropus Trident or Microsorum pteropus
Right, my bad.

So, should I do anything at this stage?

if you don't want them just clip that portion of leaf off or pull the new plantlet off. This way the plant will focus it's energies on itself instead of reproduction. But agreed with all above, good healthy sign and you are propagating them. I would let them get a few leaves an inch or more long before pulling and replanting. Well reattaching I guess.
