It doesn't yet show in the "redeemed" section when I view the details, but my total number of upgrades available has decreased by 2.
Yes when your upgrade clears AA will automatically deduct stickers. Now how you get them back if you didn't take that flight I'm not sure-is it automatic or would you need to call Customer Service. On the flip side stickers earned are posting with miles instead of the usual 24 hour lag.
