RG550 (1990) decal location?

Hi! So, I’ve just removed the trem while getting the pickguard off. I know the previous owner added a painted on varnish finish (which I was planning to redo at some point) but in the spring cavity I found much the same finish (a dark red wood varnish type thing) with a black decal over it saying ‘LPRG550’ in large cut out letters then ‘90/18’ in smaller print underneath.

I’ve never heard of Ibanez labelling bodies this way, so I’m assuming this has been added at a later date? I’m a bit confused now, because I’d not really expect top quality finishing somewhere like a spring cavity even if OE but bust making sure this refinish wasn’t attempting to mimic an original finish before I do my thing?
