help with push/pull and WCR Pickups on VIP

I am wiring a VIP with Two humbuckers from WCR with  a single volume, a single tone and a three way switch. The tone control is a pull type that I would like to split the coils.
The instructions that came with the pickups read as follows...

Black (start) and Red (finish) are the Screw Bobbin
Green (start) and White (finish) are the Slug Bobbin
For normal humbucking operation, Red and White are connected to each other (splitter connection).
Black is hot, Green and Twisted Ground are both Ground.

Would  this be the same as a Seymour Duncan wiring diagram????

Second question is whether or not there is a "50's Style" move that can be done to the capacitor with a push/pull type pot?

Thanks

Another question is whether using the tone as a push/pull or the volume as one is better.
SD diagram has the volume as the push/pull pot.

Further explanations/questions.
These are the two diagrams I'm looking at. I notice they are basically the same except for the placement of the capacitor. Anyone with any experience in either of these??

yeah that is the same color scheme as Duncans.

I'm not sure what's better about the volume or tone as the push/pull. I had a guitar with a tone push pull. I'm not sure why it would matter. It's probably personal preference.

Thanks for the help.
Does anyone know why the capacitor is wired differently in the SD versus the PRS diagram.
I notice the PRS site has the capacitor in several different places throughout the years in some guitars i.e. the Santana model
