Its just a nomenclature for configuration of particles. I got to know this from the reference: https://indico.cern.ch/event/3190/contributions/737939/attachments/613720/844379/QBBC.pdf

There can be other configurations like QBEC, QBBC_HP, QBEC_HP, QGSP, QBBC, QBEC, QBBC_HP, QBEC_HP, QGSP, QGSP_BERT etc which was listed in the indico ppt reference.

From slide 3 of that presentation, I suspect that QBBC is a Geant4 internal abbreviation for “QGSC + BinaryCascade + Bertini + CHIPS”.
