It happened at RG f.e. this year. Monfils withdrew 3 or 4 hours before first match Q, Karol Beck moved IN as a 1st alt. and his place in Q draw was replaced by someone else. But if Monfils had pulled out after some matches started, LL gets his place as far I am concerned.
Thanks for the explanation!
