Annotation - Link to Property "Component Reference" $PRPMODEL: string?

Recently I learned the purpose of "Component Reference" as a unique identifier to a component in an assembly. To me this is equivalent to and applicable as Tag Number of a product in a system. I started implementing these in assemblies. 


Now, I can't figure out how to Link to Property within a drawing Annotation to call out what I have placed there. Please help me find this.


Side note, I really wish that there was a comprehensive list of codes to enter into annotations to drive Link to Property functionality where options are not present in the UI to select from.

I found this question very difficult to search for. The sheer breadth of contexts for the words "Component" and "Reference" make it more difficult to find info for "Component Reference", which could have been named with less ambiguity and overlap if it was called "Component Identification" "Identification Reference" instead.
