I posted this book.  It's listed on here as just "paperback".  Looking at it, it looks like a mass market paper back to me.  But the isbn leads to this link.  When I click on the 'Buy now at amazon", it leads me to a book that is listed over there as MMPB.

 

My question is, does it matter if it does not say specifically MMPB?

Any softcover book can be listed under Paperback.

Oh OK, so the only two types of books that matters are if it's hard cover or paper back.  And paper back can mean several different types.  Thanks!

I actually have two copies of this exact book:  one is a mmpb and the other is trade sized, but they both say just paperback.

It only matters if it says mass market paperback and what you have it tradesized or vice versa.  If it says just paperback then it doesn't matter.  Unless of course someone has an RC asking for only mmps or tradesized books.
