In exercise 13, do the queries to the author not need to be circled because it's just an exercise? I know we talked about how everything should be circled so as not to confuse a typesetter. Or is it okay because it's obviously not meant to be changed in the type and stands as a query to the author?

The instructions on page 106 say as follows: "Circle each pronoun; make sure each has a clear antecedent and query any other problems." I don't think the answer key on pages 108 and 109 is meant to represent the efforts of a copyeditor.

Queries meant for the author should indeed be circled; judging from the way the queries in the answer key are worded, I would say that they are simply questions the student has about the text.
