comment What is the difference between known-plaintext attack and chosen-plaintext attack?
Well, ok. Raw RSA is a cryptographic algorithm, but it isn't a (good) encryption or signature algorithm. The key point is that signing a plaintext is not the same operation as decrypting a ciphertext. They typically use different keys (because they should have different management policies), and the padding is different.
