I'm still a looong way off from being a VW expert, so I'll have to wait for my next chance to get under the hood and see for myself if I can find the stamping.
Oh yeah, I did find the stamp on the block (and a sticker on the timing cover) this morning. It's an ABA engine for sure. Interestingly, Bentley says the engines built from 8.95 with OBDII do NOT have the EGR valve but they do get two oxygen sensors vs. the single one our oldie has.
