These are buffer names (in case of [No Name] buffer has no name).

:h :file_f as in

:file my new name instead of base64 gibberish

would change buffer name to my new name instead of base64 gibberish.

Note that there might be "subtle" things under the hood you might not expect to happen, e.g. :file some_existing_file_in_cwd.
