I just got these for my lab and now I need correct stacking cables. The manuals talk about model 16106 0.5 meter cable with manufacturing part number 900296-00/10/11.

Looking online I see lots of different shipping part numbers and cable tags with this same model number, for example:
900296-10-03, 900296-10-04, 900296-00-03, 250084-00 Rev. 02, 250076-00 Rev. 03.

Are these all interchangeable, or is there a difference?

Thanks, I looked at that and the installation guide. I just wasn't sure because there seems to be different revisions of the cables. Should I just trust that it works if the model number is correct, even if the shipping part number and tag on the cable vary?

You shouldn't need to worry about the "900 number."  The last two digits of that number are the Revision Number.
From what I can tell in our internal databases, it looks like the revisions were changed to signify different levels of RoHS compliance and/or different manufacturers.  The actual 0.5M cable is the same.
The "200 number" is just another instance of the original part, and shouldn't matter.

As long as the cable is identified by the 5-digit part numbers Ron listed, you shouldn't have any trouble. Just make sure you're doing your due diligence in choosing a vendor.  If there's ever any question, you can always check in with your SE or Account Manager.
