I still don't understand why.  Surely, "the end of the file name" is
before the newline, right?  And what point has to do with that, since
mouse-face is about the mouse pointer, not about point?  What am I
missing here?

No, it's 100% right, because it implements a certain set of
requirements, and those mandate that when the end point is beyond the
last character on a line, that end point is in the next line.
