I think it's a terrible decision.
No banners to check, but if the gps was correct he was still either ahead, or with the front group, when they past the 3kms to go mark.

the rules are fairly clear though, stating a "mechanical incident in the last three kilometers"

and for Alaphilippe this was not the case:

the bike change may have happened inside the final 3k, but to be fair, that's not what the rules say. Of course, it may have been handled differently in the past though - and had he been in the peloton instead of ahead, no one would have noticed that it happened too early I guess
