Default Parts replacement after Front End Collision

I rear-ended a chevy 2500 work van. Appearenlty when I hit the brakes, probabply going about 35 the nose of my car dove under his and his bumper went right into my radiator.

It's been repaired now,they wanted to total it but I fought it. It's a 2006 SE with 168,000 mile but looks nearly perfect especially the interior.

I don't think you could even tell if I damaged the van.

Anyway as I was reviewing the estimate now 2 weeks after getting the car back which looks great. I found the following discrepancies:
1. they said they replaced the battery but they did not
2. they say they changed the air distribution box assy but clamps look old and it still has my K&N decal on it.
3. They replaced both Belt Assembly Front Seat Buckle for both sides. There was no passanger in the car.
4. they replaced the mirror control switch.

The battery is obvious, the mirror switch cant prove now but what about the Belt Assembly for the passenger side? Should that have to be replaced if no one was in the seat?

I thinking of going to the bodyshop and say they owe me X$$ for what they said they did that they didn't. there are some other parts I need to inspect but these were the most obvious and I am must really curious about the seat belt thing,

Does anyone know if a collision like that can have an internal impact on the battery?

BTW the Steering wheel air bag did deploy.

Your professional opinions will be appreciated.

Thanks Vic

On the battery I would say no unless it was physically damaged like acid was leaking or something . As far as the rest I'm sure other members will chime in .
