Denied Access to the TSA PreCheck Security Line by the Document Checker

Recently, I was denied the TSA pre-check security line despite having TSA pre-check printed on my BP. I asked for an explanation from the TSO who called over a supervisor The supervisor explained that being TSA prechecked, flying a participating airline and having a BP marked TSA Pre-check doesn't mean I go to the TSA security line. He added, TSA doesn't want PX believe that having Pre-check allows them to go through without removing stuff from their bag.
​​​​​​He then directed me to the non TSA pre-check line There were very few people in any of the lines, so it didn't delay me. However, the TSA website invites you sign up for a fee and touts pre-check as a way to get prechecked... . That is why I paid good money and did screening. If this is true then TSA pre-check looks like fraud, and I am the patsy
Cheers

PreCheck is not guaranteed. Passengers may be randomly selected for extra screening.

Yes, but doesnít that usually happen at the metal detector? I hadnít heard of someone with the PreCheck notation on their boarding pass being denied entry to the PreCheck line.
