Qatar is notoriously known for constantly changing their aircraft type. The best advice (which you are already doing) is regularly checking your seat selection. Also, I believe that if you were all on the same booking, they would try and seat all 5 together. The worst case scenario is asking fellow passengers to swap. As long as you aren't giving them a middle seat, they should have no problem.

It is usefull information.
So, just to update, when we got to ADL to check in, all of our seats had been moved again. I had checked 24 hours earlier to ensure we were sat together, on the same side of the plane, but on check in apparently “the system” decided we should be a little more spread out. It’s such a frustration, especially when I booked 8 months ago!
