Emacs doesn't track the files at all, it only tracks buffers.  When
Emacs visits a file, it opens the file, read its contents into a
buffer, then immediately closes the file and forgets about it.  Only
the file's name and some other information (e.g., time it was visited)
is kept as part of the buffer object.
