A question about the variable of "input_pftdata_filename" in landuse.timeseries. inputdata

I run the FHIST compset in the CESM2.1.0
When I check the landuse inputdata (landuse.timeseries_1.9x2.5_hist_16pfts_Irrig_CMIP6_simyr1850-2015_c170824.nc) of the CLM model, I have a question about the variable of "input_pftdata_filename". It is printed as follows:


It's time ranges from 1850 to 2015.
However, I checked my inputdata sets, I can not find the corresponding data of "input_pftdata_filename". There is no data document of "/glade/p/cesm/cseg/inputdata/lnd/clm2/......". Nevertheless,the FHIST runs normally.

Does the FHIST has considered the "input_pftdata_filename" already ?
And if I want to investigate the effects of the landuse data mentioned above in the CESM, What can I do to achieve that?

Sincerely hope for any help.
Thank you.

Those are the names of the files that are used as input when the landuse timeseries is created using the mksurfdata_map tool.
They are not used by the model itself.
