Point taken, my error, thank you.

<><> the fundamental harmonic (also called 1st harmonic) of the
tube length as determined by the length of open tube. So the chalumeau
is from the lowest note to the Bb in the middle of the staff.

I looked it up in Benade, and you are correct (as you already knew
<grin>). Bb on the staff is still in the first mode.

But it does bother me why opening the register key doesn't throw the
A-key into a higher mode (and therefore into a different 'register').
I suppose if I were to read (re-read) all of Benade carefully, the
answer would be evident.
