I once flew TATL in seats (including my stranger seatmate, who had been in the same situation) that had been rebooked for me the evening before to avoid a 24 hour delay due to weather IROPs. The airline handled it well, although my seatmate and I looked at each other and smiled when we overheard a couple board and comment that we had gotten their seats. They had no idea what had happened and didn't seem to understand why, as kettles, they had been booted from business class.

I wouldn't worry about it. Just take your rightful seat and enjoy the flight in the event that everyone shows up and there really is an oversale and resulting downgrade. If someone gets ugly to you about the situation, report it to an employee. Don't engage in any conversation about what happened with any unhappy passengers.
