Hello, a quick question, does anyone using the ZA494369, Crown Stop Base Extension on the new KS120 REB Kapex?

Yes, I have them.
Kapex KS 120 REB won’t miter all the way to 60° with these. These are ONLY fully compatible with the old version. (I told my dealer, and asked them to verify with Festool, and they confirmed that they where not fully compatible)

That said, if extreme miter angles isn’t an everyday situation they do fit and work.

They are the same, no mirroring unfortunately.
If they were, the fit on the new REB would have been better.

I seen a video which said the clamps work with the extensions ... did they always do this and it’s just the crown stops that do not work with the extensions?

Not really sure what you are thinking about here, but there has been 2 different crown stops. The table extension @Makismanolis1 mention here is the old ones. They too has slots for the regular MFT/guide rail clamps. These table wideners can be used alone, as crown stops and table extensions. But also with the old “wings” KA-KS. The newer wings attaches directly to the saw, versus the old need these table extensions to work with a Kapex.
