When this is clarified I think it should go in the direction of having the held chronicles applied, even if the character is then out of tier.
With this option, I don't see any way to "game the system." It is more flexible and forgiving for those who don't carefully keep track of their held credit. This is quite possible for someone playing pregens enough to trigger such a scenario.
By restricting it, you can end up causing players to lose held credit which would only serve to disenfranchise players. When that player is already someone playing a pregen, it is quite possible they are already on the edge of fully participating in PFS.
Given that there are two options where one is more player friendly without being harmful to the player or campaign, then that is the one that should become the rules.
