I have the manuals, and the green, red, and blue stickers on the VT keyboard, but no overlays.

The Reference manual mentions that there should be a keyboard template, and that there were also “keycals".  I have two keyboards with the stickers to show which PF key goes to which set of the four rows of function key commands.

You can also display this on your terminal screen by hitting “help” twice.  It would be easy to create a template for the function keys, but with the “edit key template” and the “keypad template”, you just about have to have stickers.
