All the pics show DF boxcars (damage free).  Yellow door an identifier?

Are these yellow or gold? Left over from the 1966 RPI Golden Freight Car Award? Is it coincidence that all three examples were XML-1’s?

Quick question, I see pictures of red boxcars with yellow doors.  Did this symbolize something or was it just scavenged from the junkyard?  If the yellow meant something, were there other color-coded doors?  I have attached some photos I found online as a reference.
