I went all the way back to 2017-18, and you're right. Thought maybe it was an oversight last year when they revised the delays. I never realized that the defender crossing the throw-in plane is not one of the player delay warnings.

"Failing to provide sufficient space along the out of bounds line for a
throw-in after being warned by an official per Rule 7-6.8.e" is one of the player delays, but that has nothing to do with the throw-in plane rule.

I do think the way the current rule as written leaves something to be desired, but at least my original question has been answered.
