Lubricating Door Hinges: How? Which P/N?

I have a 2015 Volkswagen Golf. It's a 1.8L TSI.

Maintenance (D4B804178F5) and 2000 – 2017 Volkswagen Service (D3E8024D0E6) describe the following lubrication points as part of my car's service schedule:
  • Hood Hook, Lubricating
  • Door checks and mounting pins: Lubricate
However, Maintenance (D4B804178F5) doesn't contain any description of a procedure for doing this. I also checked Body Exterior (D4B8040D5CD), which does have the procedure for cleaning and lubricating the sunroof.

My questions:
  1. How do I lubricate the hood hook, door checks, and mounting pins?
  2. What part number should I use (e.g., what is the dealer using)?
  3. Wishlist Question: Is there a list of all the lubrication/grease points I should be worrying about?
Thank you for considering my nerdy question. It is frustrating that VW doesn't document everything, and the source of part numbers appears to be unclear.
