Here is a very grungy solution:

(defun scimax-store-link-advice (orig-fun &rest args)
  (cl-letf (((symbol-function 'symbol-name)
	     (lambda (_)
	       "")))
    (apply orig-fun args)))

(advice-add 'org-store-link :around 'scimax-store-link-advice)

It works by temporarily redefining symbol-name to return an empty string.
It's only redeeming qualities are 1) it works, 2) you don't have to modify
the org src code!
