How do I confirm automatic bridgehead server selection is working?

I have a two site domain (three DC's in the main site, one DC in the other remote site).

I'm about to retire an old DC that's the currently manually defined bridgehead server for my two-site domain. This to be retired DC is the oldest DC in the main site. Everything I've read says I should have never explicitly defined this, so I've cleared the settings in the DC properties in ADSS.

For each DC in the site, I did the All Tasks > Check Replication Topology

I still see the old DC as the current Inter-Site Topology Generator for the site. This is not surprising since it's the oldest DC and probably has the lowest GUID.

I was expecting to see a server(s) listed as the bridgehead in the site server list of ADSS like I did when I had explicitly selected the bridgehead. Does ADSS never show you who's the Intra-site bridgehead when it does the selection automatically?

How do I confirm automatic selection is working properly?

"repadmin /showrepl" shows everything is replicating normally.

Thanks!
