Signs on manuscripts (dots, letters, stars...)
shlomo Samuel,

The information is spread out over many books that I've read over the years; and also, from the Syriac texts that I've been exposed to over time.

Some of these symbols will differ from group to group and sometimes within the same group. My group, the Syriac Maronites changed some of our lessons over time, so earlier manuscripts will show a lesson starting and ending at one point, while the same lesson in a later time might start and end at a different point.

They're just there to give the text a more orderly organisation.

The marks relating to end of lesson, subsection, and paragraph are less important than grammatical and vowel marks. Most books you'll read will concentrate way more on grammatical and vowel marks than on punctuation marks.
