Agreed, I only see leader names.

What's shown there actually is the [side]save_id=, which happens to be the leader's id in case it wasn't specified. (So one can put something better there by setting a save_id.)
If it changes due to another leader, then that's probably bad and potentially another bug.

Furthermore, if there are more leaders, for explanation leader n°1 was in the side definition, leader n°2 was created with [unit] or recalled, the leader's name displayed is the name of leader n°1, but the sprite next to his name belongs to leader n°2, and the id shown after hitting the more> button is the id of leader n°2.

Wed 17 Oct 2012 08:05:41 PM UTC, original submission:

When viewing "scenario settings" in the status table (via the "More >" button), the leaders' id's are shown instead of their names, whereas unit it's should not be player-visible anywhere.

The comments in #12050 seem to indicate that this is done for purposes of showing the player names in MP, which makes sense, but it should only be done for human-controlled sides in MP, not for AI-controlled sides even in MP nor for anyone in SP campaigns.
