A quick grep for objectName() reveals more affected files.

~/Downloads/PyQt5_gpl-5.10 $ grep -RIni "objectName()" .
./pyuic/uic/properties.py:488:        if widget.objectName() ==
./pyuic/uic/uiparser.py:109:                              item.objectNa
./pyuic/uic/uiparser.py:117:                                    layout.
./pyuic/uic/uiparser.py:123:                                    widget.
./pyuic/uic/uiparser.py:839:                DEBUG("add action %s to
%s", action_name, widget.objectName())
./pyuic/uic/uiparser.py:856:            DEBUG("%s is buddy of %s",
buddy, widget.objectName())
./pyuic/uic/uiparser.py:861:                      buddy,
    if self.style().objectName().lower() == styleName.lower():
