This question already has an answer here:

In addition to LEGO and DUPLO names embossed inside the pieces of early DUPLO figures, there are a variety of number formats (one to three digits, some hyphenated) and in the case of 1977, the year.

Is there an explanation for what these numbers mean - and can they then be associated with a particular set and/or year?

I think they are Mould Ids rather than "batch" numbers specifically... –  Zhaph - Ben Duguid Aug 8 at 9:45
