I understood it in this way, but it doesn't do this. I looked for a lot of
primaries and secondaries and all of them are named only by there ref.

Yes I'm usind the default style. I changed nothing.

Sorry, I'm confused. Above you told me this is how to combine ref and name.

Can you test it please in Mapsource at the following location?

Holding the mouse pointer over the streets shows me the name of the street
like this:
B 57, B 58, K 22, Bönninger Strasse

Create a short routing for testing the routing instructions:

>From B57 to K22 it tells me: Turn left to K22 (no street name)
>From B57 to Bönninger Straße tells me: Turn left to Bönninger Straße ( but
there is no ref stored in the osm data)
