Well fichier in French means 'file', so this name does not really mean

Note that med-fichier is the name of the source package, the binaries
are named libmed*, except med-fichier-utils and med-fichier-doc. I can
rename those one to libmed-utils and libmed-doc, but I don't think I
will change the name of the source package. The users don't see it, they
see the name of the binaries.
