Why is my DPML block showing as available?

Why do some names in the SRS, in  some TLDs show as DPML Blocked, but in other TLDs show as available?

A DMPL block only blocks standard names during General Availability. It does not block premium names, and it does not block sunrise registrations.

Example: 

The term example is blocked by DPML, example.dpml.zone.

Searching on example.TLD1 is shows it is blocked due to DPML.  If we search on example.TLD2, it shows as available with a premium name rating. If we search on example.TLD3 is shows as available.

1. Example.TLD1 shows blocked due to DPML: "the domain name is blocked due to DPML" because there is a DPML block for the mark/ string "example"

2. Example.TLD2 shows as available as BB+:  "this domain is available as BB+" because DPML has some exceptions --it does not block premium names. The domain name example.TLD2  is a premium name.

3. Example.TLD3 shows as available.  This name is available because TLD3 is still in the Sunrise phase.

If you check example.dpml.zone in WHOIS, you'll see "This is not a domain registration. It is a DPML block. Additional information can be found at http://www.donuts.co/dpml.�

The information in Whois is provided as a result of the domain name checked being Blocked by DPML.
