But same day changes into premium cabin are a little wacky and even on a paid F ticket there's risk of being putting in coach.
If I'm on a paid F ticket, would it at least indicate in the AA mobile app which class of service I'd be seated in if I make a SDC change to a given flight BEFORE I make the change? I've done SDCs mostly on UA in the past and I know they indicate which class you'd be in for each of the SDC options they offer in the app.

Regarding Y-UP fares, aren't all "I" fares technically Y-UP fares, or are they sometimes "true" first class fares? I know that when I book these fares I generally choose the "first" fare option when booking on aa.com or ask a travel agent to book me in first class, so I'm unsure how to tell if I booking Y-UP or "true" first class short of asking for a full-fare or unrestricted first class ticket.
