IMHO "settings" is wrong here. "pg_file_settings" means "settings in config file (that might not been applied yet)". The contents of pg_hba.conf are not config settings, but there doesn't appear to be a standard name for them - 19.1 calls them "records". Given that the patch seems to report what's on disk, "pg_hba_file" seems a good name to me. Even if ALTER SYSTEM should become able to update the file, it'd still be a file. (If it were the actual running config, I'd go for "pg_hba_rules".)
