Are you sure that the custom post types were created using ACF?
CPTs in ACF are a fairly new feature. If it is an older site, like you say, then the CPTs and Taxonomies could have been created in the theme either included with the theme or by adding PHP. If it is an old site I would doubt and be very surprised if it was updated to use the ACF feature when it came out a few months ago.
