This also overwrites these fields when editing a registration as an admin in the backend. The submitted registration information is replaced by the logged-in Admin's information. How can I limit this to only the frontend registration checkout form?

Nice catch, I've updated the snippet with an is_admin() check so if the above runs in the admin it just returns $input_args as is.
