Renaming PDF in Folder doesn't update previously created links (paste from selection/paste quote)

Steps to reproduce

1: Add a PDF File to a folder.
2: Open the PDF, highlight something in it, select “copy to selection” or “copy note”.
3: In a note paste either the selection or the quote which then forms as an internal link.
4: Rename the original PDF file in the folder and the link does not update with the new text (but the link does work).

Expected result

I expected to rename the PDF in the folder and this renaming to carry through to the link in the notes.

Actual result

The PDF updates in the folder and the link to to remains in the note but with the old file name. The link does still work but it makes it confusing.

Additional information

It works for me. Post a screen recording of this not working in the sandbox vault and make sure to show what the link is after the rename.

Hi. I can’t paste a screen recording as it says the file isn’t supported when I try to paste it here. I’ve done screenshots of the screen recording.

The screenshot shows that the links is renamed, it’s the alias part that stays the same. That is not a bug, it happens for regular links as well.
