I am seeing below unwanted UserPermissions in the GIT branch, and unfortunately it went to sandbox as well through CICD. I would like to remove these assigned permissions from 4 profiles as profile cleanup activity in sandbox. If someone has any insight on what is the label corresponds to each UserPermission in profile section to view/modify it. Below were the CustomPermissions impacted on 4 profiles.

Rather than try to research all these, just remove them from the profile XML, then re-deploy. This should fix the files without needing to use the UI. However, please note that some permissions may have been added by the Winter '20 update, and standard profiles cannot generally be modified in terms of system permissions. This is why most organizations opt to use custom profiles to begin with.

Alternatively, you can run the following code to get (most) permissions:

for(sobjectfield field: profile.sobjectType.getDescribe().fields.getmap().values()) {
    describefieldresult result = field.getDescribe();
    System.debug('Field: '+result.getName()+' Label: '+result.getLabel());
