Are Shimano FDs marked with chainstay angle type 63-66 66-69

For Shimano front mech models that come with two SKUs (usually a -(something)3, c.f., -(something)6 for 63-66, 66-69 chainstay angle, is this actually marked on the part itself?

I need to replace a Altus FD-M370 on a hybrid: So far, without disassembling I can see the words FD-M370 but it is not obvious where the 63-66/66-69 could be marked.

The geometry for this model (Giant Escape Disc 1) doesn't show the chainstay angle.

Yes -- this is often marked on the outside of the cage, facing the centerline of the bike.

Thank you - found it!

For reference it is a Altus FD-M370 (63-66) on the Giant Escape Disc 1.
