For me with version v2.4.217 and this config option
CO-4H Treat leading "." as "*."=No
renaming to .NETFramework,Version=v4.8.AssemblyAttributes.vb1 works

Toggling the option, gives the behaviour your are seeing, given the description of the option, with it enabled, the behaviour you are seeing is what the option says you will get. i.e. not a bug, but unlikely to be desired behaviour.

Either change the option, or use one of these methods

1. Wildcard the name, and change the extension

2. Use find-and-replace on the extension

see "3.3.2 Rename Find-and-Replace" in the help file
