I do not want to debate about commentarian text because people nowadays thinks their understanding is better than the ancient masters. I remember I did tell you before if they are not Buddha dhamma will the 3rd council of Arahants endorsed it. That is in the 500 years where true dhamma exists.

Ok lets use the sutta wordings.
<<which is why the monk on that occasion remains focused on the body in & of itself — ardent, alert, & mindful>> you are not focus, you jump into nama and rupa. So the text tell you to remain until <<putting aside greed & distress with reference to the world.>> , you did not and that is not possible if the hindrances are not suppressed. Have you achieve that before you go to feelings

Because in the start of feelings <<On whatever occasion a monk trains himself, 'I will breathe in...&...out sensitive to rapture';>> when do we start having rapture, isn't it at the jhanas level

No problem. My 'attention to detail' is matched only by your own.
