Not sure about Beau but Johnston according to Symonds book did argue he had been the highest ranking US officer when he resigned which would have made him rank higher according to the rules the Confederate Congress laid down. But Davis argued that Lee and Joe Johnston had both served in the Militia first before joining the Confederancy which made the first issue not apply to them.  Of course Johnston disputed this .
