comment Bash script to rename files from a text file source
That suggests a problem with your input data; sed isn't going to just randomly ignore some filenames and not others.

comment Bash script to rename files from a text file source
What do you get if you don't do the process substitution? That is to say, just run sed -r 's/^\s*(.*)\s+([0-9\.]+)\s+([0-9A-Z]{8}\.dat)\s*$/mv -iv \3 "\2 \1"/' files without the sh <(...) part.
