I realize now, too late, that *I* know which account is my Roth and which is my Tradtional, but does my brokerage know that? Don't they treat all IRA accounts the same way?

Mine (Ameritrade) knows which is which. They tell from the account number.
They do not treat all IRA accounts the same way because the regulations are different.
