As designed Test permissions

When you test premissions from any user and you go to the profile of another user, you can ban or change the profile of user. So there is no accurate view in the profile with test permissions.

This is as expected.

The Test Permissions feature applies their permissions to you. Your own permissions still apply, you are still logged in as yourself.

This is mostly why the Analyze Permissions feature was developed. It is a much more accurate view of which permissions will apply to a specific user (globally or in specific nodes).
