Yellow/green refers to yellow ground color with black melanin.

White/blue refers to dominant white ground color with black melanin.

The absence of melanin results in a clear bird, while presence of melanin results in degrees of variegation through self.

A cinnamon bird could feather
out as a clear bird, with no melanin showing, so watching for eye color in chicks will help to identify the cinnamon genes presence.
