Also, if a checklist is entered on the BBA portal, does it also automatically appear in your personal My eBird account?

My understanding for the rationale was that otherwise when doing quality checks on checklists, they would have to wade through a lot of checklists that had no breeding data to realize that one or two checklists (for GHOW for example) were missing breeding codes.

So, unless you have something that qualifies as probable or confirmed, it won't matter. If you're familiar with safe dates, you'll know that most birds aren't of concern until April or May at the earliest. I'm not sure if you go back and change it but there's no reason why it wouldn't just move the data from the regular to the BBA database.
