> I also wonder if there are situations where the jobname is not yet known at the time when a filename needs to be recorded. (What exactly gets recorded? Everything *tex opens? If so, using \openin on the command line before \input would probably cause this, for example. Or a pre-\input \font command that causes a .tfm to be read.)

That's the idea. "This leaves a trace of the files opened for input
and output in a file with extension .fls."
