It seems reasonable you would eligible for OPUP on a BE fare.
While you might be eligible, it's unlikely. IMHO, the fair thing to do in an oversold situation would be to move a DM to C+ and perhaps let you (if there were no higher status pax in E) move to that DM's window/aisle seat if that's what they had vacated. If you happened to be the highest status pax in coach (unlikely) then the fair thing would be to move you to a DM's seat in C+ and move the DM from C+ to D1.
