yes, I would expect to find the actual comments there, not the interactions
related to user / comments. I note there is no property in
http://schema.org/CreativeWork or http://schema.org/Comment that has
Comment as range, in other words, what property should one use to link a
CreativeWork to its comments?

This wasn't part of the resolution:

I agree. In Drupal 7, where we link comments to their containing post and
also (in the case of threaded comments) to their parent comment, we used
sioc:reply_of. I think schema.org should have an equivalent property,
either 'reply_of', or its inverse 'has_reply'. These properties have at
least the benefit of being more explicit than 'comment'. And it looks like
we can't really change the semantics of schema:comment now assuming it's
been deployed in the wild.
