--I think it's a question of consistency rather than research. Chicago 15 6.130 numbers the list, but it's an indented list, not like this one. If you strip the periods from the list, simply be consistent -- maybe make a note in the house style manual to that effect.

Chicago 13, 5.8 (Lists) says "Use a period without parentheses
after numerals or letters used to enumerate items in a vertical
list." The illustration is a standard list. Also, Chicago 13,
8.73 (Numbers: Outline Style), says "For long enumerations it
is preferable to begin each item on a line by itself. The numerals
are aligned on the periods that follow them." The illustration is
a standard list.
