Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.

Not sure if there are any other wires at all or not.

But, the code only allows that Black or Blue be used as neutral wires.

Lives are normally white when a commercial environment but white is definitely allowed as LIVE.

So, your Blacks are supposed to be and required by code to be the neutral.

Let me know anything further needed,
