Default Where's the "X" in the registration of a Ventus 2bx?

The FAA Registry has a heading for V2bx as well as V2ax but indicates that none are in the U.S. What gives?

Imported, then exported? Who knows? I think it's more interesting that the Ventus 2A models are listed as having 2 seats. These types of errors in the FAA aircraft database download version make querying, for example, for a count of two seat gliders in the US challenging, as other MFR/MDL CODES for gliders are similarly in error with some two-seaters listed as having only one seat.

Kind of like finding an ASG29 on the registry.
