Google+ Comments - and Permissions
The new Google+ Comments has various differences to the old Blogger comments. One in particular, is the inability of this feature to run in conjunction with a Private Blog.
As a result of this inability, a change in the way your Settings page is presented, and functions, is apparent. If Google+ Comments is selected, the Reader choice for Permissions, is not visible, and the ability to alter the readership, is diminished. You have to delete Google+ Comments before you can change your blog to Private, therefore reverting to the Blogger system, for Comments.
Notice that you have NO choice to select what type of readership you want to allow, with Google+ Comments in place. However, should you wish to limit the blog to a select readership, it is a simple matter to delete Google+ Comments.
