Does anyone use those GFCI stickers?

You know those stickers that come with the GFCI outlet? I've seen a lot of GFCI questions here lately and was wondering about this. Are these things for code purposes or just convenience?

You are not required to label each GFCI-protected receptacle. That is only for your convenience, and the convenience of someone else trying to figure out why the receptacle isn't working.

You are required to label it as ungrounded and GFCI protected if the receptacle has a grounding hole but is ungrounded (which also requires GFCI protection).

I use them. I have an old house with new and old wiring. Some of the old wiring has the GFCI in the circuit. My shop wiring is labeled because many outlets downstream are protected, and the circuits are technically outside.
