Tamron 28 - 300

I have just purchased, via e-bay, a Tamron AF Aspherical LD (IF) 28-300 for use with my Pentax cameras. I live in the U.K. and the lens came from the U.S.A. It is a 72mm filter size. The equivalent European lens has a 62mm filter and differs in appearance. This is not a great problem but I can only find the Euro User Manual on line. Most things I can figure out, no problem but a couple of issues intrigue me.

1) There is a little inverted triangle mark slightly to the left of the Diamond shaped mark for setting "A" or the aperture. It's a bit like the offset infra-red focus mark often found on manual lenses but it is in totally the wrong place for that. What does it signify ??

2) I feel I am not getting the best out of the "Macro" facility, am I missing a trick somewhere, any advice or a link to the U.S. user manual would be most appreciated.
