I don't think they still have number plates. Even when coming with a foreign car, you have to take the plates off and only use the competition number.
I don't exactly know the reason.

Yes, cars have normal registration numbers, but for rallies they need to be removed and you need to use your rally number instead (top right of front windscreen and rear bumper). I heard it's because of police, so they can easy see what car/what number on road sections. During Ypres when one stage visits France you also need to put sticker with number on front windscreen.

Yes. What was said to me when I went there to Rallye du Var is that is for easying identification of the car. Not only from police but also from public if needed

At the Ypres Rally when they had just one stage in France, all drivers had to swap to numbers for that one stage and then swap back to registration plates afterwards.

If I am correct, one of the reasons for this numbers was easier identification from police, but there were also some insurance issues.
