Because the expansion of \refn requires information that is not available at the time that you attempt to expand it using \edef; you need to defer the expansion, as below.

\input eplain                
\message {\string \refn: \meaning \refn}
\def \mytest
        \edef \tempa {\noexpand \refn {f}}
