Here is a page detailing the changes from R2018 to R2022: https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/reprocessing/r2022/aqua/
In terms of time of completion: L2 - OC and IOP are completed. L3 binning is underway as of this morning, so I this week seems likely. @OB ODPS - towens can give a better estimate if I am too far off-base.
For MODIS-Aqua both R2018 and R2022 Level-2 files are there, but a number of files from the R2022 processing are still missing. Attached is an image of the 2003 R2018 L2 files (open circles) and R2022 (points) coloured by Day.Night flag. Just making sure that there is not a new time cutoff for the L2 files in this reprocessing? (This is for the area bounded between 46 - 56.5 N, 139.5 - 122 W)

I just ran a query in search.earthdata.nasa.gov for 2003 using the bounding box you defined. It returns 1656 granules.
Running a similar query in our L1/2 browser returns 1560. The 96 difference is likely the difference between geodetic (CMR polygon bounds) and quadsphere based searches.
Running the CMR query for R2018 returned 2200 granules. More than the R2022, but the R2018 CMR records were populated using a Cartesian (bounding box) coordinate system, while the R2022 uses a Geodetic (polygon) system. The Cartesian results will give more false positives.
