Meaning of subfolder name in Vivado project outputs

In Vivado, after I generate output products, folders are created with what appear to be hex values for names. What is the meaning of these folder names?

Is this a checksum?


My goal is to prove or disprove that an FPGA design in a built prototype unit matches the FPGA design in a particular Vivado project. The Vivado project, which was checked in by the engineer (no longer available) who did the FPGA design, errors out during synthesis because it looks for files in a subfolder with a different hex value combination name. I'm trying to understand what this folder name tells me and if it's simply an artifact of using a different computer or synthesizing at a different time, or if more information can be gleaned.

I am using Vivado 2015.2, since this was the dev tool used by the original engineer.
