Just don't expect to be upgraded - that is not one of the benefits just an occasional perk.
Agreed that upgrades are definitely not a published or official benefit in any way.
Regardless of all else, you will be able to board early. AA boarding order for 2 class domestic flights is supposed to be:
First Class
Executive Platinum and Platinum (inc OW Emerald and Sapphire)
Priority AAccess (AA Gold, OW Ruby, Full Y tickets, AAirpass and people who paid for it)
Groups based on seat numbers
