For lack of anything better, the pattern is normally described as the "Joyce Terry" pattern after a particularly well known example from Tell Muhlestein, which incidentally was one of his last popular introductions.
As distinguished from the ones under discussion as possible "yellow plicatas" as Chuck Chapman is considering the issue, those have the yellow laid on in dots and stitches or radiating lines matching exactly anthocyanin pigments if present.
This would eliminate the yellow ground solid, anthocyanin plicata examples, and the sort that emerge from solid anthocyanin but with yellow dotting patterns that merge toward the petal edge as solid, "Joyce Terry" types.  Bred to the ones Chuck is talking about, these would yield solid, not patterned yellows.  A different factor or set of factors are at work.
