Data Lettering (Lack Of) On Chateau Martin Wine Cars

I've noticed that the few available images of Chateau Martin wine tank
cars (in the former milk tank car bodies) appear to have no data
lettering on the cars sides. Here is an example:

The car offered by Intermountain (with the wrong body color) does have
data lettering (http://www.imrcmodels.com/ho/html/48212.htm ) but if
the color is incorrect perhaps the appearance of data lettering also is
incorrect.

Is there a good reason for this or are the cars represented in the
images simply anomalies?
