It happens a lot for me with recent FPS games. Mine is always set at open yet in Halo 4 it claims it's closed, any CoD it claims it's moderate and BL2 it claimed it was strict. Yet I never have a problem joining anything or having anyone join my games so more than likely the games just don't read it right.
