I have always thought endnotes would be better called bibliography, just like in scholarly articles. I'm no native of that funny little island where people drive on the wrong side of the road though....

They are called 'Noter', plain and simple, whether they are placed at
the bottom of the page, at the end of each chapter, or at the end of
the book. Just open any Norwegian book with a note apparatus.

Thinking of it, I should probably change the subheading in my own Exodus
as well, from 'Kilder' to 'Noter'. Most of them are source references,
but some are my own ramblings.
