EAD card renewal and I-495

So I have been residing legally for six years in the US as asylum applicant. My second EAD card renewal was due February 2021, which is totally routine, the thing is I got married to a US citizen that same month, I sent my renewal form I-765 along with my green card application and all the forms that go with it, and the payment authorization forms for each.

Usually the renewal of the EAD card is $410. When I check my bank account this morning, I was charged both the amounts for I-495 and I-130; so $1,225 and $535 respectively however, they didn’t charge me the $410 for the employment authorization.

Was I not required to renew since I got married? My authorization for employment should expire soon and HR in my company hasn’t really mentioned anything about it and I doubt they will, it just makes me a little anxious.

Also, on another note just for anyone who’s going through the same process of adjustment of status, I filed my I-495 on February 10th and was charged on April 9th so almost two months to the date. I did not get a receipt. I understand this is because of all the covid backlog.

Also, does anyone know if interviews are being waved? We’re a military family so I’ve heard this might be the case.

The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
