Sounds like old Testors kits

the yellow box ones from the 1980s. They labeled the sprues with a symbol in the instructions, usually a circle, square and a triangle on a cut out page. Then when you built the kit, it listed part 12 triangle, you knew what sprue it was from.
Tamiya and Dragon both use a letter to call out the sprues.

...if the reference source for markings and painting info was noted on the kit instruction's painting guide.
Book title, author, publisher, ISBN and page (or web-site address) would be very helpful. It is very likely the manufacturers know where they got their info, so why not share and make it all-the-more-easier for modlers to confirm?
Many after-market decal manufacturers (Archer, Bison and Echelon come to mind) provide such info as an aid to their customers.
