LeafSpy question regarding Leaf replacing 30kw batteries with 40kw for under 9 bars

I've been seeing Leaf owners on Facebook who are getting their 30kw batteries replaced with 40kw by Nissan for free under an 8 year 100k mile degradation warranty. I didn't even realize this existed until I checked the owners manual (I have a 2017 Leaf S). I didn't even know what size battery I had until I called Nissan and they told me I have a 30kw. But then I saw that people actually have the 24kw but were told they have the 30kw. It's all so confusing.

I installed LeafSpy Pro. Is there a way to confirm that I actually do have a 30kw battery via that app? Here's the screenshot of the app. I'm not sure how to put it in the post but I added a dropbox link:

I want to be prepared for when I drop under 9 bars.

Thank you!

Going by the VIN, the 4th character is a "B", so I assume it has the 30 kWh pack.

Battery capacity is measured in kWh, not "kw".

The 24kwh Leaf S was discontinued in mid 2016, so all of the 2017 Leafs have 30kwh packs.
