It is mesmerising how changing technology stack, industry and company culture have a tremendous impact on your seniority.
One year ago I moved from being a .NET architect in Brazil, with 11 years of experience, to being a senior React/Node.js developer in Germany, in a job that teams are expected to handle their own operations in AWS, Docker and Kubernetes.
Only now I can say that I reasonably understand the overall company architecture and processes. It is not easy to move from being the go-to guy to a person that barely understands what is going on and whose opinion is not super valuable.
Despite being a hard process, it is absolutely valid in terms of learnings.
Wow! Sounds like you have very well rounded and in-depth experience and knowledge after that!
I think your story proves the point that being competent in the tech stack you working with does matter.
