There are 'hostnames' in the capture file, like in the HTTP Host: header or in service banners, and there are ip addresses in the capture file (src/dst address) which you or Wireshark can resolve to names via DNS (works only if there is a DNS entry - PTR record - for the address). So, what exactly are you looking for?
