I purchased a used Porter Cable 693 fixed & plunge base router combo
recently. In the box (no manual), I found these 2 elongated screws,
with a red 2 printed on the top of them. Do they go with the plunge
base somewhere? I looked at the parts diagram on the Delta/PC website
for this router but dont see these on there, or at least dont
recognize them in the line drawing. Any ideas what they are for if
they even go with this router?

The 690 uses unthreaded rods for attachment of the guide, with screws as
you describe to secure the rods.
My old (~1973) B&D came with a pair of long and a pair of short rods
that looked much like duke's photos, except that they lacked the painted
number. (I'm wondering if the "2" isn't the length.)
You're right. I'd forgotten which got screwed into which. What the
OP has are *definitely* PC edge guide bars, which screw into the *edge
guide*. They then fit into the holes in the router base, holding the
edge guide to the router.
