Has anyone had a claw back after the credit posting and then cancelling the flight?

It can take months. There are definitely reports of clawbacks for this.

Will Amex credit work if I use a $10 Delta gift card and Platinum for the rest, assuming it's >$100. Consensus seems to be for <$100 it works but I can't find any DP's for over that amount.

Thanks. Does anyone know if there are any dps in regards to claw-backs for downgrading (not canceling) a card after utilizing the travel credit for that year (after the first year)?

I don't think so, and it would not make sense for them to do so. Because when you downgrade your annual fee will be prorated for the amount of days you had your platinum, so you technically paid for the right to use the credit during that period.

That being said, this is AMEX, so anything is possible.

In one fell swoop on a ticket that was ~$250? Sorry to be redundant. I just want to make sure.

If I purchase a $200 flight and use $5 travel credit from JetBlue travel bank I can expect that to trigger credit, correct?

Nope. Only in combo with less than $100 on CC in my experience.
