For adjacency effects in film developing you usually use very dilute developer, which extends development time, giving the developer more of an opportunity to 'creep' from shadows to highlights in adjacent areas. My print trays are also agitated every 15-20 seconds, probably not enough time for any adjacency effects to actually materialize.

My own experience with using a replenished paper developer, which contains a lot of byproducts from previous printing sessions (restraining action, similar to exhaustion), is that it's merely tonality that changes to slightly softer.
