Is the Mosquitto server part of the mqtt plugin?

No, CQC is just a client in this scenario. So it just subscribes to topics on external MQTT servers. So it's just interested in getting information, it doesn't act as an MQTT server itself. A lot of folks these days are probably likely to use some cloud based server, as unfortunate as I think that is, like AWS.
I've considered implementing a server and selling it separately as our first non-CQC product, but I'm not sure it's worth the effort.

You could also install Docker on Windows and then install Mosquitto in docker.
Relating to automation and using MQTT I am currently seeing more automation tinkerers running MQTT at home versus the cloud; well and similiar to updating WiFi automation devices firmware to work with MQTT and opensource automation software.
Personally the new WiFi switches are candy to those folks tethered to the smartphones / yut of today that really only care that they can manage their automation in the cloud.
I have been playing a bit with bean counting using Thingspeak. I got a MATLAB account a few months back using my University account which gives me a lot of play time with it.
