I have a collection of multi-band Sentinel-2 rasters. From these, I apply the Extract Band Raster Function. On the resulting mosaic dataset, I need to retain the initial band names. For example, if I extract B4 (red) and B8 (ir) bands, in the resulting mosaic dataset, I will have B1 and B2 as names, but they can be easily misinterpreted as B1 (coastal aerosol) and B2 (blue) bands.

Is there a way in ArcMap or Python to retain the original band names?

A Python solution might be tricky but this ESRI blog post shows doing this in ArcGIS Desktop. Basically you need to access to the new mosaic's properties and, from General tab, change Product Definition to Custom from where you can specify band names and preferably wavelengths.
