All the drywall I have hung lately have marks at 16 and 24 inch to help with screwing in the field. I also use the marks at the floor and ceiling and ether use a stud or a 4’ level to transfer a line. I recently covered some plaster ceilings with drywall that were badly damaged and super old construction where center distance wasn’t always right on the mark. I located each joist on the ends of the room by screwing test screws thru the old plaster finding the joist center and then snapping a chalk line before ever lifting the first sheet.
To me the trick is really in the framing and taking the time to get those members located very accurately on the 16’s. make sure that first sheet is perfect and the rest will follow. Nothing worse than trying to adjust mid-stream.
