Seems it's at least more complicated. I did some trial on an ogg file. My 
provisory conclusion is:

- as long as the extension is NOT known to the system, teh file seems to be 
identified correctly

- if the extension is known (e.g. rename *.ogg in *.png), some programs read 
it correctly (Audacious, vlc), others don't (Decibel).

So i'd say it depends on the program.
But the OP did not say why he did not rename the file...
