Somehow I had gotten the notion that the Council was confused over whether the Necromancer was Sauron, or the Chief Nazgul/Witch-king of Angmar. Judging from the quotes from the chronology apparently not.
Actually, now that I've finally located my copy of The Silmarillion, it does seem to say what the Tale of Years does not: that in the timeframe leading up to The Hobbit it had been suspected that it was one of the Ringwraiths in Dol Guldur as opposed to Sauron himself.
