      Some buffers (help files etc.) do not appear in the buffer list except with
      some commands like :ls! (with exclamation mark). When you open a new file it
      gets the next number after all buffers including "unlisted" buffers; and
      IIUC no buffer number gets reused even after :bwipeout.

      See :help new-unlisted-buffers for an explanation of what these "unlisted"
      buffers are.
