The entries in that file have not been referring to actual file names for at least a decade if not longer. It's just been kept that way in order to stay compatible with any known and unknown consumers of that data. The only real meaning is the _version_ that setup knows to be installed (the packagename is the first part of the line and just repeated for the version part that still looks liek a filename). For setup itself, the file name to be installed doesn't need to match anything at all (it wouldn't even need a .tar.xz suffix to fihgure out the file type), but there's a naming convention that gets followed. It's mostly so that one can look at the install log and understand what has been installed or more easily find a file to manually install.
