What stock number at Cubic Tech is Cuben described as 49 inches by 14.5 feet and the piece weighs 7 ounces? My math shows 36 grams per m*2. Is that the CT3.5K.08 listed at 35.4 g/m*2?

Yes, the CT3.5K.08. It is 35.4g/m2. I do believe you need to order in lengths of 9m if you order directly from Cubic Tech.

BPL-Shop-Accessories-Bulk Fabric-Cuben had the cuben piece listed and not marked as "Sold" as some other fabrics were marked. Being naive I thought that meant that piece was for sale in the BPL SHOP. Noooooo, it is "out of stock".
Somehow, some fabric items have been sold while others are simply out of stock. The nuances of the situation still escape me. Perhaps BPL has ordered more pieces that are exactly 49" by 14.5', when the roll is 54" wide.
That is possible but seems a little unlikely.

Years ago when I first started using Cuben Fiber it only came in 48" - 49" width.

It is now made in 54".

If someone has 49" width it may be some of the older Cuben Fiber.
