Yeah, exactly, that's what I thought - and it should have put me very high on the list, right? I have no reason to think it was not coded properly. More likely that the list was run by the GA to clear those that s/he wanted instead of those that should have been. It is much easier to do on the INTL flights: the GAs have a LOT (like limitless) discretion especially when Y is even slightly oversold, and hence an enormous potential for abuse ...
