Could anybody tell me about the warnings and why they exist?
Ah, ok. Got it. The compiler is just telling me, that the first assigned value has not been read.

is there an official term/name/... for the _ variable binding?

I'd just refer to it as "underscore let binding" if I was searching for it
I don't think there is an official term for it

I've never heard one for it

@jplatte I guess the underscore is more greppable or searchable (in source code), good point...

Isn't it more wildcard than default?

I usually call it „garbage“ variable or „throw-away“ variable. But I don't think that is in any way official.

I don't know about Rust, but I believe it's called a "discard" in many programming languages.
