Question timing chain

i've been asked if my 1988 420sel had a single or double link chain. well it does in fact have double rows.

can anyone tell me when the notation of "some early models had single row chain" actually took place. the only photos i've seen have the double row. could the engine number identify it's original type?

tks again
Thanks Much!
