Dhabi says in Meezan-ul-Atadal

وقد روى عنه البخاري في الصحيح، على الصحيح، ولكنه يدلسه، يقول: حدثنا عبد الله ولا ينسبه، وهو هو

No doubt, Bukhari narrated from Him in His Sahih; but HE DID TADLEES; and He said: Narrated to me Abdullah and did not mention His Parentage so and so

[Meezan-ul-Atadal, vol 4, page 122, under the heading Abdullah bin Salih which he started on page 121]

Dhabi further says in His Sair Aalam Nabala

ومحمد بن إسماعيل البخاري ، ويُدلِّسُهُ كثيراً !!! ، لا يقول : محمد بن يحيى !! بل يقول محمد فقط !! أو محمد بن خالد !! أو محمد بن عبدالله ، يَنسبهُ إلى الجدّ ، ويُعَمِّي اسمه ، لمكانِ الواقع بينهما !!! غفر الله لهما

……… And Mohammad bin Ismail Bukhari (narrated from him); but he did a lot of Tadless ; He did not say Mohammad bin Yahya; He would rather say Mohammad only, or Mohammad bin Khalid, or Mohammad bin Abdullah; relating him to his grand grand father; and Hiding his name; where as reality could be between them; May Allah forgive them

[Sair Alam Nabala, vol 12, page 275, under the heading Zuhli which he started on page 273]

Let me explain this so that it becomes easy for Brothers who are reading this

The narrator he is talking about
His full name is

Mohammad bin Yahya bin Abdullah bin Khalid bin Faris Zuhli

So, Bukhari wont say : Mohammad bin Yahya

Rather, He would say Mohammad bin Khalid

I hope this eases what Dhabi said

Dhabi further says on page 275

وقال أبو نصر الكلاباذي : روى عنه البخاري ، فقال مرةً : حدثنا محمد ، وقال مرة : حدثنا محمد بن عبدالله ، نَسَبَهُ إلى جَدِّه . وقال مرة : حدثنا محمد بن خالد ، ولم يُصرِّح به

Abu Nasr Kalabadi said: Narrated from him Bukhari, and He said: [said again  narrated to Me Mohammad]; or [again said: Mohammad bin Abdullah told me] attributing Him to His Grand Father; again said: Mohammad bin Khalid told me] attributing Him to his Grand Grand Father]; and he (Bukhari) did not explain

I hope You got what Dhabi said…..

We find that Ibn Hajar made a full chapter in

Hadi-us-Sari Moqaddama Fath-ul-Bari

And in that, there is a chapter named

“Fasl Sabi’i:-fi Bayan al Asma al-Mohimilla allati Takthur Ishtirakoha”

في بيان الاسماء المهملة التي يكثر اشتراكها

that is,

Chapter 7: In regards to Explanation of the Names which are not clear and are mixed

And if this Chapter is seen, It is full of such names which as per ibn Hajar
are not clear

In this Chapter, he also mentioned what was mentioned by Dhabi

That is, the way Bukhari justs mentions Mohammad or at the most Mohammad bin Khalid; who was not his Father

And then ibn Hajar mentioned Kalabadhi, and Hakim who said that it is Mohammad bin Yahya Zuhli
[Hadi-us-Sari Moqaddama Fath-ul-Bari, page 234-235, Chapter 7,Dhikar min Ismaho Mohammad]

there are so many names which ibn Hajar mentioned
