Is there a reason to change the current behavior, which is that it
prefers the last-used build agent?  (Fixing it so that it checks out a
new working copy as Brett mentioned seems out of scope for this issue,
but maybe it's easier.  I think right now you have to have a previous
successful build for the release to work.)

Not sure about the "and" here, isn't this two separate cases?  (How
can they be disabled if there is no group?)

How is the default build agent defined?

What happens if there is no BUILD_ENVIRONMENT chosen at all?  (Or is
it required in the distributed build case?)

Maybe a wiki page would be better to sort this out, it needs to get
into the docs eventually. :)
