its perplexing that someone would put another tubing decal on the seat tube.

FWIW, my Motobecane Grand Jubile has "Vitus 172" decals applied over the clearcoat, even though the other decals are under the clearcoat. I think it was not uncommon during certain production runs, or (who knows?) after one cafe au lait too many, for the factory to apply decals in different order. That alone doesn't indicate fakery. Sounds like it's been sorted out, and you've got a lovely bike there!
