Rogue One Minifigs (sw806) and (sw805) are identified in the catalogue as “Corporal
Tonc“ and “Private Calfor” respectively, however, looking at Wookieepedia, it
is clear that the Minifigs do not represent these Rebel Troopers. I have
not found which (if any) Rebels are represented by these Minifigs, but
they are certainly not Tonc and Calfor.

The Wookieepdia names and images are sourced from the Ultimate Visual Guide,
though.
Additionally, here is a thread on Eurobricks that compares Minifigs to Rebel
Troopers in the Guide:

Though Tonc is not included, it is clear that the Minifig “Calfor” is misidentified.

I think this is probably why it is better not to give proper names when Lego
doesn't give proper names. I don't know any of these rebels by name
anyway. Practically no one does.

You have a point. But I think lacking many of these names of all those backgorund
characters is because they don't have names when they starting develop a
film and LEGO start working on sets from those films only on concepts materials,
especialy now when SW films are appearing sow frequently and sets must be on
market with them. Look how many new SW sets have flaws when comparing with source
materials. The best example I wasn't able to spot in TLJ First Order Heavy
Scout Walker (71577)

Correct. Also:
1.) LEGO may not have the names of characters, or the correct names of characters
(see "Sergeant" Jyn Erso - (75119)), at the time of the sets' production.
2.) Names may come after the release of the movie/show in question (see
(sw646), who was only just revealed to be Commander Rex in the Rebels
series finale).
3.) LEGO tends to only put the names of well-known characters onto set-boxes.
This makes sense from a marketing standpoint - "Luke Skywalker" is more of a
draw for children than "Lieutenant Insert_Name", who only appears in the background
for about three seconds.

We seem to have gone a bit off-topic.
When you have a chance, would you please check the entries for Tonc and Calfor
in your Visual Guide? If they match those that I found on Wookieepedia, then
the names should be removed from Minifigs (sw806) and (sw805).
