According to,

The pcfile pc-value table produces indexes into a table of source file names. That table has the format:
N+1 name1 name2 name3 … nameN

Parsing the binary manually, it has N at the place where it should be N+1. objdump does what the doc says, and so ignores the last entry.

This problem has existed since at least Go 1.6 (did not check even earlier versions.)

(runtime/internal/atomic.Xaddint64 should be intrinsified, which is another issue. I have sent a CL.)
