As per the manual¹:

    Buffers that are ephemeral and generally uninteresting to the user
    have names starting with a space, so that the list-buffers and
    buffer-menu commands don’t mention them (but if such a buffer visits
    a file, it is mentioned). A name starting with space also initially
    disables recording undo information; see Undo.
