Upgrade when business class full / first class empty (JFK-SFO)

Transcon flight JFK - SFO (A321), about 7 days out. I'm Exec Plat on waitlist to upgrade with miles from econ to business.

Business class is filling up quickly but not a single First Class seat is occupied (10 seats empty).

If biz class does end up full before my upgrade clears, does AA bump up biz class passengers to First to accommodate EP upgrade with miles request?

Seems lose/lose for them/me to fly First empty when there's a revenue-generating (co-pay) EP upgrade on the biz class waitlist.

Any tips/insights appreciated.
