Maybe there is some nuance regarding the AW possession exemption between the BB and the OAL, but I can't see how declaring it is under 30" per the CURRENT definition is harmful.
It’s written right into the statute...

12276.1 (a) Notwithstanding Section 12276, "assault weapon" shall also mean any of the following:
1. A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following:
A. A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon.
B. A thumbhole stock.
C. A folding or telescoping stock.
D. A grenade launcher or flare launcher.
E. A flash suppressor.
F. A forward pistol grip.
2. A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.
3. A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.
The new regs changed the definition of how to measure the OAL, but if you check the box stating your rifle is under 30” and subsequently send photos demonstrating so, it is admitting to violating the statute in bold.
