I don't understand why the staff aren't being honest about this. It means the member has been post-banned at some point.

I don't expect this to be an acceptable answer, but actually:
There is no significance to Member vs member. We've had a good number of changes in the guts of ATS over the years. Some of the results are different just because they're different. No rhyme, no reason, no ulterior coding or motive.
At one point, registrations resulted in "member", at another it was "Member" and likely back and forth on some random scale depending upon some little tick box or coding input done at the time a change was made. Timing mostly, and whatever one cares to read into it is as relevant as tea leaves or chicken bone casting. Of course if that's your deal, then there you go.
