Imagine your HEAD is at "side". What should "master@{publish}" produce?
I would argue "ram/master". Where does "ram" come from in your code?

It does not matter for actually pushing, because to do a non-default
push, you must always specify a remote. But "@{publish}" will ask the
question "even if I am on 'side' now, what would happen if I were to
default-push on 'master'?".
