I wondered the same thing myself, and so I had asked the same thing of
my contact at Life-Like a few weeks ago, and this is what I was told:
"The Dulux cab numbers were from the beginning of the PC
renumbering/repainting era. Some units other than ex-PRR got them in
Dulux if no white was around more for getting the larger numerals than
anything else & I found some earlier shots of these with that color, so
thought it would be a good conversation piece."
So that's the reasoning behind the yellow numbers.
