Just a note for potential future reference,
first showing showing an example of finding
what name(s) identify remotes:

# git remote show

Then there is checking what remote branches are known
for one of those remotes (showing an example here):

# git remote show freebsd
* remote freebsd
  Fetch URL:
  Push  URL:
  HEAD branch: main
  Remote branches:
    main                             tracked
    refs/notes/commits               tracked
. . .
    vendor/zstd                      tracked
  Local branches configured for 'git pull':
    main        merges with remote main
    releng/13.0 merges with remote releng/13.0
    stable/13   merges with remote stable/13
  Local refs configured for 'git push':
    main        pushes to main        (local out of date)
    releng/13.0 pushes to releng/13.0 (local out of date)
    stable/13   pushes to stable/13   (local out of date)

There can be things in that output such as:

. . .
    refs/remotes/freebsd/vendor/openzfs stale (use 'git remote prune' to remove)
. . .
    vendor/openzfs/legacy               new (next fetch will store in remotes/freebsd)
    vendor/openzfs/master               new (next fetch will store in remotes/freebsd)
    vendor/openzfs/zfs-2.1-release      new (next fetch will store in remotes/freebsd)
. . .
