I don't have a clue what the current MLGB numbers mean or if there is any intelligence built into them.
Based on the few I have seen so far, they almost look like sequential serial numbers - nothing more.
BTW - we eventually found one single item with the old "OK" stickers that had a 11 as the second and third digit, but only one with dozens of people I know checking their rolling stock - not that it mattersw much since I also don't know what the relevance of "11" is vs "01"
Got the following from the horse's mouth as far as the MLGB sticker is concerned.
Very straight forward - the number includes the year of manufacture and then simply a sequential serial number - different for each item.
This is actually exactly the same system we use at our company - QC then had a record of which serial number labels (ie numbers) were used each day and on which line, shift and operator, so if there ever was a manufacturing problem it could be traced back to a day and a particular production line and shift.

The extra diaphrams are slightly different. There is a plastic loop on the header(top) of one pair, and a slight difference in the side.
The extra diaphrams are meant to be used when this Gourmino car is coupled to a coach of the "67" type, ie 30673, 30674.
The diaphrams of those cars are slightly different and these extra diaphrams provide a better match for those cars.
