b/g are the same band, so it's expected behavior. When Sam named the devices he just used b in the name.

I'm thinking that I'm going to remove the bg/a/abg names and just have one source, and tell people to edit the channel assignments. The only 2 reasons the a/bg/b naming system was used to automatically set the channel range for the card, and to try to autodetect the encoding method. The second was a bad idea, and it isn't done in newcore anymore.
