So do you think you can reliably tell the difference between SAE Yellow (modern indicators - ECE stopped using amber years ago) and the yellowy warm-white daytime lights?

Yellowy warm-white daytime lights?
Never seen them, they're always bluey white ime.
Plenty of current cars still use yellowy incandescent lights for daytime running lights. Fiat 500 for example. Look a few up on https://am-application.osram.info/en

So it's a different colour, in a different place and is animating to boot!
On some cars, maybe. They're pretty rare IME, much rarer than those with similar-colour solid lights right next to each other.

Really? This is reminding me of the engineer in the "Black Sheep" joke from https://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/susan/joke/3.htm
