Yes, the Row and Seat on the new jeans are supposed to be missing. I have sold real Joey Destroyed Jeans and they don't have it on the tag either. I did notice though that True Religion has 2 different RN numbers. Both go back to TR, but I guess one is newer than the other and manufactured at 2 different places in the US. My Joey Destroyed Jeans had both Joey written on the back and 503. Maybe it's because the RN was different on both of them.
