Assuming the guide is correct, then it looks like if you arrive on certain international airlines (eg CX, LH, KL etc) then there is an in-transit preclearance/USA Connections Facility (checked bags are not claimed at YVR).

If arrival on other airlines (and you have bags) you will be dumped landside after baggage claim. The fact the guide segregates out certain airlines suggest there is no access to in-transit preclearance when arriving on the US portion of the terminal.

It really boils down whether at YVR, international arrival and US arrivals (from Delta) are segregated or not. In YUL, it is not segregated.
