REF_PIN_NAME is a read-only property on pins in the design indicating a logical name that uniquely identifies the pin.

This property is automatically defined from the NAME or HIERARCHICAL NAME of the pin, and can not be modified by the user in either HDL or XDC. It is intended for reference only.

The property does not influence any steps but is very useful in defining filters and other Vivado Tcl command queries to identify specific cells or other objects.
