Transfer case ID tag: Auto or Manual trans?

Can someone tell from my transfer case tag if it was configured for an auto or a manual transmission?

This question may be irrelevant now that I’ve researched a bit more, but maybe someone can confirm?

I have a leak from the rear extension housing—definitely leaking coming from the weep hole—and I read that there are different shaft lengths on the transfer cases depending on the year and transmission type. Teraflex makes an extended seal for when you have a short transfer case shaft when you need a long one. However, I think that isn’t my case after all; I have a 3spd auto in a 98, which I now believe takes a short shaft, so I probably just have a worn output seal and not a case where I have the wrong length shaft.

Tags are the same regardless of short medium or long input/sun

The tag date year is useful to tell early vs late tooth profile on sun/ring/planet gears
