Parts on factory PC boards are 99 percent of the time outlined by silkscreened legends.  VIA's are unmarked.  Hole far too small for a component lead (30 gauge wire barely fit the hole), what would you think?  Get real.

So you had to figure out that it was a VIA and not an unused plated through hole solder point?  I have never thought about that. It seems that many boards have unused holes for parts that later were not needed.  Are there any tip offs that a point on the board is a VIA?
