Unfortunately you can't simply do that with those kinds of ``extensions'' (quotes because -blx-bib is not really an extension). I have put in a request for the next version of TeXShop to remove .run.xml and .bcf which would interfere with the use of latexmk engines if you change from the biber to the bibtex(8) backend. (Latexmk 4.22e uses the presence of the .bcf file as an indicator that it should automatically use biber as the backend bibliography processor.)

Good Luck,
