I'm only on a couple of those, but also on various other technical lists.
I've never seen "STD" referring to an IETF document. People usually
just cite the RFC.

You do get references to a "standards track RFC" and the stages
"draft standard", "proposed standard" and "standard", but those
are fairly rare and "STD" is unknown to me in this context.

I fairly often see "IETF BCP" for the Best Current Practices
documents, but even those are usually cited by RFC number.

For example. here is one that I fervently wish more web
developers and administrators would read:
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2142.txt
