You present no more evidence on this point than when you posted your speculation last time.
The purpose of classes was to distribute men from various neighborhoods, so that if a class was called up it did not take most of the able-bodied men from one area.
I doubt that the numbers had any more significance than when you counted off for teams in grade school.
