Say I add an image using the built-in Media module.

A couple months later, I have to change the image file for some reason. So I edit the media entity, delete the existing file, and upload the new file. The new file has the same name as the old file.

This creates a new file, filename_0.jpg. How can I cleanly replace the file without adding a new suffix?

Use the Media Entity File Replace module. This is the exact use case it was created for.
