Is there a chart or table somewhere that identifies the purpose of each and every asterisk?

Not as far as I know.
The only way is to scan all the docs/notes coming with updates/patches. But even then ...
Let's hope the sometimes mentioned AE wikis will be able to collect those bits and pieces.

Astrisks when located by Airfield, like this *Airfield means the airfield is overstacked with squadrons, if it is like this Airfield* then the airfield is overstacked with number of planes versus the amount of AV support.

I will totally ammit I may have these reversed or that they have been changed in a patch. But I know they mean something like this

One of my favourite asterisks is the one showing the location of the parent unit on plane transfer...

I do not think there is indication that base is short on Aviation Support (except red color in base screen). Also I am not sure, that "*" can be on the other side of text, but I have not actually took close look at that.
I think *Airfield indicated that Airfield is overstacked by number of groups, OR number of engines.

Also, in combat report:
When air unit have "*" it means it flies at extended range, or using drop tanks (and probably have lower efficiency).

The Zeros all flew with drop tanks, and theres no asterisk. Do the Allies have more information, than the Japanese, in their combat reports?

'*' on combat report means flying at extended range.
