No, they won't be causing a problem.  (.so sections are not linked into
your executable.)

Hmm, I guess I should have told you to generate a map file before
looking at all the input files.  A map file will tell you which input
file sections are linked into the output .text section.  You probably
will find that some other (writable) section is being linked to .text.
If that is the case, then the cure is to fix your linker script.  (I
gather from a previous comment that you are using your own linker
There is one section .plt that is RWX is linked into .text. but when i
put it in the .data section in the script file. The .data section
program header is gone and all (.text, .data, .bss) moves to .text
