Cropping changes DoF

It seems to me that if the wide, medium, narrow settings are just different sensor crops, and the lens is a fixed focus 2.8... then the minimum focus distance would be exactly the same for each setting.

No it  wouldn't be.
Changing the sensor crop is in effect changing the format. Which changes the CoC for DoF calculations.
