I don't quite follow (and I think this is maybe
getting into the weeds now, for a general Emacs
help list).

What I suggested is switching to a bookmark file
that has _only_ bookmarks for the target file,
as opposed to just loading such a bookmark file
to add to the already loaded bookmarks for targets

You save those bookmarks by saving the bookmark
file, i.e., by saving the current `bookmark-alist',
i.e., by using `bookmark-save':

  bookmark-save is an interactive compiled Lisp function in

  It is bound to C-x p s, menu-bar search bookmark save.

  (bookmark-save &optional PARG FILE)

  Save currently defined bookmarks.
  Save by default in the file named by variable
  'bmkp-current-bookmark-file'.  With a prefix arg, you are prompted for
  the file to save to.

  If 'bmkp-last-as-first-bookmark-file' is non-nil, update its value to
  the file being saved.

  To load bookmarks from a specific file, use 'C-x p l'

  If called from Lisp:
   With nil PARG and nil FILE, use file 'bmkp-current-bookmark-file'.
   With non-nil FILE, use file FILE.
   With non-nil PARG, prompt the user for the file to use.

But there are other, i.e., additional, ways to group
bookmarks, besides a bookmark file.  As the doc says:

  Unlike the other ways of organizing bookmarks into sets (tags,
  bookmark-list bookmarks, etc.) bookmark files represent
  physical, not logical, groupings of bookmarks.

Bookmarks themselves can be saved in any bookmark
file, and in any number of different bookmark files.
