Mark-up help google determine the type of visitor you should receive?

This thought is based on the assumption that google assigns searchers and websites to categories such as:
searcher: informational, transactional, navigational
websites: informational, transactional (ecom)

If a website uses mark-up on a page to identify a product (http://schema.org/Product) can/does/should that indicate that the website should receive visitors that have done searches that are transactional in nature?

Probably yes, but Google can also recognise products without having [schema.org...] markup.

Whether Google thinks the site is a good match for a transactional query is a different matter.

Yes, google can certainly figure things out. My thinking is that using the markup removes any gray area.

Whether Google thinks the site is a good match for a transactional query is a different matter.

That's interesting, I wonder what signals google could be using to determine if a page/site is a good match for a transactional query.

I have not seen Google really be able to handle product mark up well let alone being able to make assumptions from the data. They are too busy crawling blogs.
