Unfortunately you can't downgrade. As 4.2.2 was on the old bootloader. As I suggested boot into download mode, volume down and power button and see if there is a knox counter. If it says knox you have the new bootloader. If there is no reference to KNOX at all then you can safely install stock 4.2.2.

I still don't understand how it is that I can't go back to 4.3, since it uses the same bootloader as 4.4.

I went into download mode and my phone said the following:

ODIN MODE
Product name: GT-I9500
Current binary: Samsung Official
System status: Official
Knox warranty void: 0
RP SWREV: A3
