With BF Auction Plus 1.5.4 there seems to be a new issue un-masking usernames.
Ticket #16 gives a solution for all views but does not help for the bid view.
Seems that the id"highBidder" used in the related <div> is defined somewhere and is relevant for displaying the username, independently what the following php-code says.

<td class="bfauction_plusDetails">
<div id="highBidder" style="float: left; text-align: left;" /></div>
if($this->bfauction_plus->highBidder == $user->username){
if($this->lastbid->maxbid > 0){
echo ' ('.$bfcurrency.''.$this->lastbid->maxbid.')';

In 1.5.4 there is also no definition in ...controllers/bid.php as described in ticket #16:
Then you'd need to edit /components/com_bfauction_pro/controllers/bid.php, around line 86
$highBidder = substr($highBidder, 0, 1).'******'.substr($highBidder, -1);

The high bidder is updated via AJAX, and the code that you are looking for is in the luCurrentBid function in /components/com_bfauction_plus/controller.php

//around line 1378
if($highBidder == $user->username){
$highBidder = substr($highBidder, 0, 1).'******'.substr($highBidder, -1);
