I think -coded is the sort of thing where there's examples the majority of people would agree they are X-coded, examples the majority of people would not agree that they're X-coded, and plenty of examples where people will nitpick and fight over if they're X-coded or not.

Like I wasn't really in the MLP fandom, but I know there were discussions about...
Most people would agree that even if they're candy colored ponies, the Cutie Mark Crusaders and their classmates were child-coded, they're intended to be kids.
Most people would agree that characters like Princess Celestia were adult-coded.
People would happily fight over if the main six ponies were adult or not. They're the same size as the other adult ponies and Rarity owns her own business, but Twilight is still a student. So with no canon ages given, what's the right interpretation?

It ends up messily trying to guess the person's reasoning for shipping a pairing, and there's no faster way to start wank on the internet than by guessing why someone likes something either with build-in moralizing or by attaching one. ( "Girls only watch Doctor Who because they think the Doctor is hot." )
