    I do have a 1941 backpack edition printed in Antigua. Also have a 1943 organisationsbuch Der nsdap in fraktur. So appears no real consistency
    Also have two wedding editions both 1943
    One is in Gothic fraktur the other Antigua

    So appears one cannot make hard and fast rules about when the font actually changed

    Antiqua was forbidden 1941 by law. But the different printing houses had book covers in Fractur and often book blocks in Fractur left and used the available stock.
    So, they kept binding together what they had. You can see issues with
    - cover, dust jacket and book block in Fracture
    - often mixed cover, dust jacket in Fracture and book block in Antiqua
    - rare is both in Antiqua, you see it in the late years of war

    Wasn't the Fraktur font type that was banned from use in 1941 (because it had "Judenletter" - Jewish letters) according to Bormann's circular dated January 3rd, 1941?
    On this circular he stated that Fraktur had Jewish letters and prohibited it's further use. The Antiqua [Roman] type was designated as the standard typeface.
