After review by the development team, it has been determined that this issue is related to a known limitation with the software that lies outside of Esri's control. The issue's Additional Information section may contain further explanation.
This issue is not reproducible.
Help document reference:
Note: There are exceptions when the true bit depth does not match the bit depth property within the Raster Properties window. While Esri Grid rasters are always stored with a 32-bit depth (either as signed or unsigned integer, or floating point), ArcGIS will display the bit depth property with the most appropriate bit depth according to the range of cell values the raster contains.
