as a user, and owner of a repository I do care about the objects that are in it.
I do not care about the way they are names, be it numbers or sha's, but for

I do not understand this: I have produced several examples that show that
it is not created, i.e. that the very same objects are present in the repository

Most dictionaries state: "to cause to come into existence", i.e. before creation
the thing does not exist, and after creation it does.
