I don't have much comment on the above, as I don't play much with seeded

What are you actually looking for here? We aren't required to sign off
every upload before final freeze, so we just need an archive admin to
verify that uploads are unseeded, and wave them through.
We can point archive admins at these uploads, but can't approve them

Most of the time, I don't follow the queue flood in #ubuntu-release, as
it'll probably be approved by an admin without my involvement.
Or would it be helpful if we did follow it and asked for approvals?

It's hard to be a focal point of contact with MOTU, but we can respond
to any "can I upload this" queries. We get a good few of those, but the
response is usually "If you have to ask, you should be filing an FFe".
