Yes, the plugin satisfies all your expectations.
The plugin only adds an image if there is no featured image or if the ‘overwrite’ option is activated. If this option is deactivated the plugin does not change any existing featured image, either added automatically or added by user.
If there is no featured image the plugin adds one while saving the post automatically if any rule matches. So your users can delete the image and save the post, and the plugin adds an image automatically. (Without saving the post after deletion there is no new image – I think that is obvious.)
Your users can delete and change existing featured images at any time, even if the plugin did set the image in the past.
So you get every event with a featured image.
