naming format of custom fields?

Is this Jira standard way that custom fields will have prefix "customfield_" attached with id of the field?

Can a administrator change it?

customfield_ is used in some Jira Api. You can not influence it. It is internal representation. Why would you want to change it?

There's no sane need to change it, and it would be a massive project of scanning all the source code to find out where it needs to be replaced.
