ive noticed a bunch of K98s with the serial number on the bottom of the stock, just behind the hand grip matching the receiver serial number. ive also seen alot without it stamped there at all. is this one of those "no rhyme, no reason" deals with the K98 stampings, or should they ALL have it, but maybe worn / faded / sanded away over the years ?

Serials on the outside of stocks on the keel was done away with in 41-42. I have seen BYF 42s with serials on the keel up to the "G" block, but am unsure when it was stopped completely. After this time, the serials were left in the stock/handguard channels until 45, when some manufacturers started using unserialed stocks. I am not sure when/which ones, but am sure this is addressed in "Kriegsmodell".
