F == foxy, ie: the codename of the ROS release that particular build targets.

64 == amd64, or "64 bit", indicating which architecture it builds for.

source == "this is a source build", which is a different way of saying it's a build which does not result in .deb or .rpms, but which prepares the necessary artefacts for binary builds.

So Fsource is a source build targeting ROS 2 Foxy.

While F64 is a binary build, ROS 2 Foxy, for 64 bit platforms and results in .deb packages.

For more information on the different types of jobs, refer to ROS build farm based on Docker: Job types.
