You won't find maps in the Recorder's Office, as they aren't a recordable document. However, engineering plans for subdivision layouts are required to be submitted for approval, just as building plans are. Once the subdivision roads are accepted by the city/county or the building receives its CO I suspect the retention period is limited to just a few years, as the plans are so voluminous storage becomes an issue.
It sounds at though you want to determine where in the complex a specific floor plan can be found. The architectural plans are what you want but I suspect were probably destroyed long ago. The community site map to which you referred was probably an enlargement of site map used in the developer's brochures. After a few years the community signs will become a victim of weather and aging. Assessor maps are essentially schematics showing the APN, acreage, and property dimensions. They do have their use, but not for your purposes.
