<field name="code">product.ean13.code</field>


<record id="seq_ean13_sequence" model="ir.sequence">

<field name="name">Ean13 code</field>

<field name="code">product.ean13.code</field>

<field name="prefix">000000</field>

<field name="padding">6</field>

seq_type_ean13_sequence is an ID as it may referred inside the same xml. from refer this ID externally, you'll need external ID. it means you've to prefix this id with it's module name and add a single dot, between module name and ID. then external id will become somthing like: module_name.seq_type_ean13_sequence

in v8.0 you lookup for a record corresponding of this xml id as follows: 

xml_record = self.env.ref("module_name.seq_type_ean13_sequence")

then xml_record.id should be database id.
