A3 1.12: Markers placed in editor will be in the array as a string of their name. Markers placed by the player will begin with "_USER_DEFINED #."

To expand on the comment above. In Multiplayer, user created marker will appear in allMapMarkers as _USER_DEFINED #ID/Number, where ID is unique id related to _id param from onPlayerConnected and Number is sequential integer incremented by 1 with each marker placement by the IDed user.
