"I've often wondered what these marks high on the forehead are intended to depict."

I wondered this myself a while back, and I have some notes on it. I think it was John Fiorillo who gave me the info. (?)

Anyway the eyebrows are referred to as "kurai boshi" or "class dot" or possibly "rank mark".
Indicating, I would guess, a person of higher social stature.
