My company has pit a salary increase freeze in place, but I’m starting to hear about a few people getting promoted privately. Are these people most likely getting a title promo only?

I would hope so. I was well overdue for a promo, but my review happened to be the same week everything started to shut down. I got an excellent review, but my GAD said she had tried to advocate for an exception for me and that there were "no exceptions." I pushed back and asked for the title with no raise (don't want my resume to later say I was X role for X amount of time when it wasn't true) and our CTO agreed to have my title changed with no increase in pay. We decided not to publicly announce my title promo, as we anticipated that others would speculate I had gotten a raise. I've heard of one other promo (which was publicly announced) and of course, it led me (and others) to question whether it was just a title promo or if a raise was involved. I'd say, most likely that they are not receiving a raise. If anyone found out, it would cause a revolt.
