I've been traveling/busy so have only peripherally paying attention to
this thread ... but so far I've only seen people describing their own
similar setups.  I strongly suspect that's because there is no
"upstream source" for this; this sort of file naming is a common idiom
in unix/linux used for forcing an ordering on configuration files that
are read from a directory, without having to name the individual files
in some sort of control script.

So this particular ordering was probably invented by the original
author of your in-house project.

A typical extension of this would be to add another tag in each file
name so that they could be divided into files read for all shells /
interactive shells / login shells.
