Default Right of abode and CUKC

My mother's paternal side of the family tree :
Mother's grandmother born 1897 in the Cape Colony.
Mother's grandmother's father born 1859 in the Cape Colony.
Mother's grandmother's grandfather born in 1832 in Manchester in the United Kingdom.

Section 12(5) of the British Nationality Act of 1948 states :
A woman who was as British subject immediately before the date of the commencement of this Act and has before
that date married to a person who becomes, or would but for his death have become , a citizen of the United Kingdom
and Colonies by virtue of any of the foregoing provisions of this section shall on that date herself become a such a citizen.

Would my mother's grandmother received the right of abode from her grandfather being born in the UK and would she have been a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies(from her mother married to her father - father being first generation born outside the UK) in the modern day if she was still alive ?

In the modern day the 1948 Act has been replaced by the 1981 Act. Prior to 1949 everyone concerned would’ve been a British subject. Is this purely an intellectual exercise or does it have a practical purpose?
