Is the Delta app behind the times in that regard?
Yes. To this day, if your seat changes, whether by your choice or the GA's, the app's BP does not change. Even European LCCs have this feature working.

Again, yes, but perhaps the GA was hoping you'd just accept the new assignment without saying anything.

They shouldn't, but that doesn't mean there aren't any rogue GAs. We have a whole thread on this board about shenanigans GAs sometimes pull when it comes to the first class upgrade list, and sadly, it wouldn't surprise me at all if we need one for Comfort+ too.

Please write DL and report this GA. There's no excuse for their behavior--it sounds like they tried to pull the wool over your eyes and you smartly wouldn't let them do it.
