I am usually using couple of vehicle sets, mainly road vehicles, and I like to know which vehicle comes from which NewGRF. So I can use buses/truck from the same set in a town or region. Furthermore I can see which set's vehicles I am using frequently or rarely, so I can keep or remove it from my next game. You can enable or disable this feature in the settings. I put it among the advanced settings, because most players probably are not interested in this. But as you can see in the forum, at least one is interested. :)

I like it, though I wouldn't personally bother with the setting

Agree, there's no need for the setting, just show always.

I removed the setting part. (Actually I added it only for this PR, I also have been using it for years without the setting part.)

I'd rather not have the text there all the time, I play on a small screen and more info text will cause the vehicle part of the buy menu to be physically smaller due to height constraint.

i.e. showing this text increases noise-signal ratio for a very marginal case.

Just my £0.02

One place that does notably the lack the newgrf name is the newgrf debug window for vehicles. Separate issue though.

I wonder if having it just as a tooltip (over the "Designed" line?) might be sufficient. Or is that too hidden?

I think the tooltip indeed would be too hidden. And if you are choosing between the vehicles you should always move the cursor and wait/right click for the tooltip to show up, and it's not comfortable.

So should I put back the setting?

Please :)

Generally I am -1 to settings, it's more combinatorial things to go wrong.

But there is already a lot of text info shown for vehicles, so I think this one is valid as a setting.
buy_menu_info

^ that's the purchase menu filling full height of my 13" screen, I would rather not lose more vehicles from it :)
