broctl starts each worker with an option that tells each worker to use its own name as a script prefix.  If you look at the running bro command you should see something like 

/usr/local/bro/bin/bro -i p1p1 -U .status -p broctl -p broctl-live -p local -p worker-1 local.bro broctl base/frameworks/cluster local-worker.bro broctl/auto

where 'worker-1' is the name of the worker.

This means that if you create a script called worker-1.local.bro, it will be loaded for that worker only
