Key Used to Lookup Symmetric Passphrase.

I'm using gnupg 2.1.18-1 on Arch Linux. `gpg -c foo' asks for a
passphrase. I enter `p-foo' twice. For file bar it's `p-bar'. `gpg -d
foo.gpg' doesn't prompt, which is good, getting the passphrase from the
agent. Ditto bar.gpg. If I rename foo.gpg to xyzzy.gpg it still
doesn't prompt, finding the correct passphrase. What's the key being
used to look up the symmetric passphrase? Is it something random stored
in *.gpg and thus survives the rename? How can I list these in the
manner of -k and -K?
Very happy to read documentation on it, but haven't spotted anything so
