The marks are for an initial reference only. Once the belt is correctly in place and proper tension set, the cam is in time with the crankshaft and will stay that way until the belt breaks or slips from one cog to the next (won't happen if the tension is correct).
After the belt is initially set with the marks lined up, two rotations of the crankshaft (one rotation of the camshaft) will have the marks in a different place. The only exception would be if the belt had an exact multiple of ribs/teeth compared to the crankshaft, and that is not very likely.

If your belt came with marks, then they should match the marks that are on the sprockets and block, if not, you must have the cam marks align with those on the engine. If you're in doubt about the exact spot, lay a tooth pick across the sprockets so that you can check alignment to the block.
