No it would have been switched, it was a fairly common thing to have done to cure cackle in the older superduty trucks., especially after the grey CPS came out.
The grey CPS causes many #8 injectors to come up as a fail on the contribution test, so many Ford dealers took even more of our money by then selling 7.3 owners new #8 injectors, by which time the AE was out so thats what people got.
Or if an owner came in with a complaint of knock, after some expensive testing, the injector was replaced with an AE...
Money grab mostly.
Mid year 2000 the AE became standard IIRC
