1) The adjective сменный in the word combination "сменный офицер" derives from смена that also can mean  "duty" in the military parlance. In Russian they say i.g. " сменное дежурство" that means "shift" or" stand-by duty". That is why "сменный офицер'" will mean a "duty officer" or even an "officer of the day ".

It is so that the word "смена" has many senses and can mean:
change; changing; (замена) replacement; shift; (лошадей) relay, relief and other more.
See details here:

2) There is a difference between two verbs: развиваться ( to develop, to evolve; (прогрессировать) to progress, to advance, to be in progress )
See here:
and развеваться ( to flap, flutter (на ветру), fly, swing, tremble, wave (о флагах), waver (о флаге и т. п.), stream; 2) Naval: waft, wanton 3) waverer, flap about etc.) See here:
