No, this is incorrect. I believe you are talking about
Restricted Data and Formerly Restricted Data both of which refer
to nuclear related information. Again, I would like to see such
a document that can be independently obtained from an archives.

Again, I don't think you saw Secret Restrict, but rather Secret
Restricted Data (SRD)

The GOA Roswell investigators were cleared for access to nuclear
weapons data and could see Top Secret Restricted Data.

One problem in researching at archives is that documents
containing Restricted Data must be reviewed by the Energy
Department for release in addition to the originating agency. A
real problem when nuclear capable units of, say the Air Force,
are involved.

This is completely false. A Q clearance was necessary for access
to nuclear data. It is not between anything.

Security manuals are readily available to researchers so
mis-statement like this could easily be avoided with a little
