If that's documented somewhere, I've not been able to find it in the
docstring for `switch-to-buffer'. etc/NEWS.24 just says:

*** New completion style `substring'.

*** Completion of buffer names uses `substring' completion by default.

without explaining what substring means. It certainly has surprising
behaviour (with emacs-26):

src/emacs -Q
C-x C-f src/xdisp.c
C-x b di
C-x b sc TAB => *scratch*
C-x b di TAB => di [sole completion] ; I expected xdisp.c as well.

Is the actual behaviour substring-unless-exact-match or something?
