That name='' is not parsed, it won't get saved, it doesn't mean
anything to libvirt.  This particular configuration doesn't say much,
because type=network means all the settings will get set from the
network dpbr_n_0.  See https://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html for all
the things you can configure in <interface/> and what does each option
