If you hover over those bold ratings with your mouse a popup comes up that says propagator, so it probably has to do with how the round ratings are calculated. Either the ratings is too low or they do not have enough rated rounds to be a propagator.
I am not exactly clear on how this is implemented, but it looks like they are making some subtle changes to the ratings system.
PS I am far from an official voice on this. My statements are only from observation and deduction on my part. Don't bet the farm on my words...
