I can't really explain it, unless you tend to check in at a desk, use locations without FLY, the ground agents can't be bothered, or have checked luggage. Pretty much consistently for me if you are in an exit row at a FLY station there is a double bleep at the gate (if not already cleared down) and usually the gate staff will say "You're ok for an exit row", or "you're aware you're in an exit row". This applies on A319,320,321 and 190s.

Previously on Flyertalk:
Gate BP bleep for exit row: but not consistent?

Boarding question - double beep at gate?

"Inhibited" with emergency exit row

(there are about 11 threads on the topic).
