Upgrades (i.e., movement from one class to another, as in Y-->C) do not get reimbursed. Seat assignment fees, as in buying an E+ seat on UA or Main Cabin Select on AA, are authorized incidental fees (you aren't moving from one class of service to another.)

The airlines like to market E+ seats as an "upgrade"; for AMEX incidental credit purposes, they are not (or, shall I say, historically they have not been considered "upgrades" by AMEX and have thus been reimbursed.)
