Is the thickest string muted when playing A#5 and C#5 power chords? It looks like Justin isn't muting it with his index and I really can tell from the sound.

I know this is extremely late, but yes you are supposed to mute the low E string.  Use your ears my man. I know when I was learning this song, that low E sounded like dog crap when I let it ring out. A simple solution for an awesome, "easy" song. But just an example of how using your ears and listening to the actual recording, you can determine what you should play.

Cheers.

In the video lesson (at 6:07) Justin shows a simplified strumming pattern in addition to the strumming pattern from the songbook. He says this simpler strumming pattern is used "later on" in the song. I have problems figuring out when this is. I guess in the intro the more complex strumming pattern with the mutes (from the book) is used and on all the choruses the simpler pattern is used. Is this correct?
