What I’m trying to do

I am trying to change the filename of a note X linked by another note Y. The link’s syntax has this format:
[ ](<notenameofX>)

The link should get updated correctly with the same syntax. Nonetheless it seems that changing the filename makes a wrong update of the link’s syntax. It seems Obsidian tries to convert the link syntax to the format:
[ ](

Even though there is this automatic update of the link, the update is not correct. There are some characters after the .md and the last one is “>” Anyway, I would like Obsidian to preserve the original style of the link format after the link’s update, that means:
[ ](<notenameofX>)

Things I have tried

I have tried to change the filename of the linked note X and the link on Y gets updated in a wrong way.
