Does this create the variable before the mode is enabled?  If so, it
would save me searching for the name of the file to read the patterns
from.


What if someone edits the buffer and changes the value of this variable?
Will it be updated automatically?

Currently, the functions I have search for the file name in the buffer
every time it´s needed because it could have been modified.
