Yes! CFL and non-CFL installments are coded one way or the other. An unsecured loan with CITI bank will not be coded as a CFL, while an unsecured loan with CITIbank Financial will.
Now that I look, it was the #4 factor, so I guess it is more marginal. Do you know whether any unsecured installment loan is considered by FICO (any of the bureau scores...not just Equifax) as a CF account?

True, very true unless your FICOs are 800+
From what I can see, it's almost good to get the "too many CFL's" comment. It generally means that the scoring formula is running out of real issues to carp about.
myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.>> About myFICO
