The point is that Stormcaller's attacks are elemental, so they ignore armour and can't be mitigated except by passive elemental resistence. In turn the actual damage they hit for is tuned to account for this. A tank swap just means that the tank with the temporarily non-existent armour is on the boss where armour doesn't matter.

As for prioritising a Shadow tank on Stormcaller, that's just because of their slightly higher elemental resistence. With tank swapping, though, it's somewhat of a moot point.
