The system would seem to hiccup from time to time. Boarded a QF 747 in MEL bound for LAX via SYD some 15 to 20 years ago to find someone else had my allotted seat. We both had boarding passes specifying the same seat. A check of the manifest by the FA (first class should it make a difference) and no mention of me. Alternative seat found and all was well. Would the flight deck have been advised?
Possibly. It depends on whether there was going to be a delay.

However, the situation was resolved so the load system would have been updated and accurate.
