The dealer gave me a choice on coolant - change to pre 2013 HOAT or stick with the new OAT. I stuck with the new OAT. I did it because of liability issues if the wrong coolant was accidentally put into the truck because it had markings that say "OAT" only in the engine bay and all service manuals. I only keep my cars 2 years or so, but an unsuspecting next owner could end up with a ruined engine.
So far, the smell has not returned. I smell antifreeze on occasion, albeit slight, but not the odor from before.
I have a few thousand miles on it since the hose change and flush. I won't consider it fixed until 5k miles or so.
