Absolutely they should.

The sticker is found on the sill of the drivers door. Open the door and look down below the door latch on the frame or body of the car.

The following info comes from a couple of different older posts (Ferms_93_2.8T, jrldrony) ;

The sticker looks like this :

As far as the letters go (bottom line, far right) :

The first couple describes the front brake disc.

AA: 15" 285mm
AB: 16" 302mm
AC: 16"+ 314mm (mounted on 2.8 V6)
AD: 17" 345mm (starting from 2008 only on Turbo X)

The second couple describes the rear discs

BA: 15" 278mm (from 2003 to 2007 on 1.8i, 2.0t, 1,9JTD. From 2008 on only mounted on 1.8i)
BB: 16" 292mm
BC: 16" 292mm only on XWD

The third couple describes front brake caliper

CA: 15"
CB: 16"
CC: 16"+
CD: 17"

The fourth couple describes rear brake caliper

DA: 15"
DB: 16"
