I survey the tertiary road again :

no number on destination sign for this road (but I found funny error on 
destination sign)

destination sign is in white -> according with
highway=tertiary is correct

I found a few signs with the cantonal number on it.
FR for Fribourg
2510 for the cantonal number
25 for the sign number (it seem to be in increments of 25)
11 B : no idea, 2 others are empty. Another has 4.0

So as I found the cantonal number by survey, I may add it to osm.
But I didn't find any previous tag used for that in Fribourg nor in the 
whole country in taginfo
rcrc seems to be specific to the canton of Vaud
So I temporary put it as reg_ref:CH:FR for regional ref, Swiss, Fribourg
It is maybe not the best choice.
I'll start a new thread to discuss a common way to do this across the
