Folio start gallows

Considering almost all folios start with 1 of 4 gallows with the occasional o thrown in front how is that explainable in terms of natural language? Do any manuscripts or books start with only a choice of 4 letters? If not alphabet letters could they show which "code subset" to refer to. Could it be a 4 subset rotating code or even 4 completely different codes used?
