It still says "Your American Airlines Admirals Club membership gets you in the door at more that 50 comfortable lounge locations worldwide so you can relax and unwind while you're waiting for your flight." Pretty scammy if there are indeed changes starting Nov 1, 2019.

My guess is that the Citi agent simply didn't know. I doubt that they have specialized reps per branded card, thus details like this can easily be missed until they become implemented. Not a good excuse, I know, but likely the reality.

And as @LovePrunes says, it would be completely impractical for the ACs to have different access rules based on how you "paid" for your membership.
