Strange numbers on romanian m44 bolt

Hi, I recently got a 1954 Romanian m44. I usually always look up the meaning of marking when I get a new mosin. There are a lot of number markings on the bolt that I cannot find any meaning anywhere. They probably have little significance but if anyone knows what they mean that would be great. The most common number is 02, but there is a few more numbers stamped on parts of the bolt, all only 2 digits. Here is some pictures.

What's the last two digits of the serial number?

If not that, a factory code, or maybe inspection code.

The bolt is from a Hungarian M44. The 02 is the Hungarian Arsenal Code.

I did hear that almost all of the m44's that were imported to the u.s was through romania. Even other countries m44's were. Now I wish it was a original romanian bolt.
even if it did not match.
