The AI of this diagram has a slightly imperfect implementation of the rules: The 'Stranded Pawn' promotion option on last rank is always available, and such a Pawn can only promote after it moves. I is assumed this will have no effect whatsoever, because it would never choose to stay a Pawn when other choices are available, and refrain from promoting when there aren't in the extremely rare case it would have such an opportunity.
