After review by the development team, it has been determined that this issue is related to a known limitation with the software that lies outside of Esri's control. The issue's Additional Information section may contain further explanation.
server (neither hosted nor on-premise) doesn't inform ArcGIS Online when a schema changes. Workaround: In data report, click button next to dataset.
The Open Data Admin user does not need to republish and remove the old service.
A workaround for this is, in the Open Data Admin Data Report tab for the site, click the button next to the dataset, it is a graphic of two arcs of a circle chasing each other, with a tooltip of 'Reset dataset and downloads'.
This causes the system to re-harvest the dataset and update the database with the current schema so that the details page displays the most current attributes.
