Strange Paint/interior codes

I have tried to find my paint and interior codes using the vin# but nothing checks out. The car is a 99 sl and its a dark green with what I think is a shell interior. Here are the codes from under the hood. I can't get any of these numbers to match the paint codes. Any help would be appreciated. Here are the numbers from the trim tag under the hood

3123139 2 257 494
129068 12 257 551
238 600
10 809
0233515 8 810

If this tells you anything else that would be nice

I did do a search both here and on google but the numbers don't match

I'll tell you one thing that bothers me with MB's codes.
You will never know what the interior trim ( wood ) is called.

If there is a way, let me know cause I haven't found it. Exterior and interior leather details are there, but I just can't find the name or code of the wood trim.
