I think that the presence of a dot could be connected with the use of galvanic-based silver deposition, while the absence of the dot could be connected with the use of fusion-based silver deposition. Next mark differs from mark No.3 by a rounder shape of the oval.Again, the absence/presence of the dot after the word "PLAQU" could be connected with fusion-based/galvanic technique of silver deposition.
