Yap, thx.

Yeah, those are local labels. From the gas manpage:

Keep (in the symbol table) local symbols. These symbols start with system-
specific local label prefixes, typically .L for ELF systems or L for
traditional a.out systems.

Apparently, one can even add own prefix for local labels too:

Mark all labels with specified prefix as local. But such label can be marked
global explicitly in the code. This option do not change default local label
prefix ".L", it is just adds new one.
