All in all a frustrating and potentially time consuming experience with very little gain for having a contactless card.
In my experience when the account number changes, those that have it on file for bill pay were auto-updated. I did verify with them but they were all updated. I only have a few things that do this however.

I don't personally see the point in the metal. I agree it is less secure since you can't easily shred it. Also, for a travel card, when going through the metal detector at the airport, it's a pain. I previously had my wallet down to the point that I could leave it in my pocket without setting anything off.

The last ~3 replacement cards I've gotten have all had the same account info.
