And sure enough, when I ran an 'update metadata only' after a regular 'update if new chapters', a couple of the stories changed their status.
Correct. The names say it all--"Update EPUB if New Chapters" only updates if there are new chapters. "Update Calibre Metadata Only" updates the metadata only. Sounds like what you want, however, is "Update EPUB Always".

The tooltip for 'Default Update Calibre Metadata' says "On each download...". If there are no new chapters with "...if New Chapters", there's no download done, so it doesn't apply.
