Looking at timing belt and three marks appear to be inline

I am reading "ECM uses 3 ignition primary control signals to ignitor for ignition coils. See Fig 1. DIS uses 3 ignition coils which fire 2 cylinders simultaneously using same ignition coil. Cylinders No. 1 and 4 fire together, 2 and 5 fire together, and 3 and 6 fire together. "
