Chrysler/Dodge Paint Procedure

I am refinishing a tailgate for a customer off a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 3/4 ton. He gave me a touch up rattle can the previous owner had from the dealer (it was branded Mopar). The paint code is ZDR. I did a little bit of research and the paint codes for that truck/year that match is PDR. The guy at the paint shop said that the DR is what matters. My first question is that a correct statement? I don't doubt it is but I just wanted to ask since I was posting.

The primary question I have is that I found a deciphering of the Body Code Plate from Geno's garage (Dodge pickup Body Tag Decoding) and my primary question is regarding section 14 of the body code plate. Section 14 is the Paint Process. When I look at the description it just says "Open Space". What are the possible codes for the Paint Process? I'm assuming it would describe whether it was single, double, or even a tri coat paint job or maybe even the type of paint that was used. If anyone could help with what those possible Paint Processes would be I'd be grateful. I obviously want to duplicate the process of the original and not just assume it was BC/CC. Especially since the color is a metallic.
