What happens to records if the picklist field value is updated

Hello there, 
My question is that there is a picklist field with 3 (a, b, c) values , the value  b changes from b to b1. So then what happens to

1 All the records,
2 The reports column and the report filter.

If you change value from b to b1.

1 All the records
Yes new value gets updated.

2 The reports column and the report filter. 
Report has old filter however the there would be change in record count as new value is being update at field level and you might not see any records based on old filter condition.

You need to edit report and update filter condition to new lov.

Hope above information was helpful.

I have gone through your problem.

1.All the records
Yes, the new value gets updated automatically.

2.The reports column and the report filter. 
When a picklist value has been renamed, the filter criteria in the reports and views are not automatically updated.  Users must manually update any report filters that reference the previous picklist value.
