This wouldn’t surprise me at all. None of his abilities make that much sense yet, but he’s supposed to be strong enough to help defeat King Arthur, whose magic is quite literally reality-bending (I don’t know if you finished Nanatsu but I would definitely recommend reading the last 10 or so chapters to get a basic idea of what Arthur’s ability for this series is). His basic abilities seem very strong, so when he starts mastering his magic, I could see things going a bit crazy...
I don’t believe anything happened with the seal at the end, actually. It’s been “off” since the Demon Clan got released into Britannia. It really depends on what happened to the lower class demons etc. after the end of Nanatsu. I’m genuinely not sure what they’ll do with it.
One of the knights is going to be Meliodas/Elizabeth’s child (Tristan). He’s a Demon/Goddess/Human hybrid so his magic should be interesting.
Another will be Lancelot, Ban and Elaine’s child. Half fairy, half human. They did a little side story for him between the end of Nanatsu and the start of this series which is worth a read because it sets up his character quite nicely.
The fourth knight is still a big question mark, the only thing we know is what we were told in one of the earlier chapters of this series.

Was the main character (the guy that looks like Percy) correctly scaled back and believable that he shouldn't be one hit KO'ing everyone prior to the Demon King? If so, this series is even easier since it is just steadily developing Percy.
So the first 100 chapters were very good and felt very consistent, but then there was a HUGE leap in enemy power level when the Demon Clan were released, so everything went a bit iffy after that. And when I say iffy, I mean the powerscaling was a MESS.
Meliodas (MC) basically powered up by having his “true” power level gradually unsealed in various ways. He’s essentially Demon King level at his “prime”, but his power is sealed for a flurry of reasons. His “true” magic (not Full Counter) is stronger than the Demon King’s, and he conveniently decides towards the end of the series that after 3000 years of suffering, he’s ready to use it. Every time he got some of his power back, a character would say something like “THIS is the true Meliodas”, only for him to get another massive powerup at a later date.
The rest of the Sins were a bit of a mixed bunch. Merlin (who will be a big part in this series) basically has infinite magic that she can call upon so all she really did was try slightly harder towards the end, Escanor (Pride/Sun guy) was basically built on the premise that he was invincible so his ability literally allowed him invincibility at times, and the rest of the Sins got a single power boost that took them from being far too weak to handle the Demon Clan (Meliodas and Escanor did a LOT of the heavy lifting for about 100 chapters) to being the strongest of their respective races.
I have a lot of issues with Nanatsu’s powerscaling but 4KoA shouldn’t have the same problem because we’re being introduced to characters who eventually become the strongest, rather than characters who are supposedly the strongest but are weakened massively for plot reasons.
