I think all of that is intentional. Even Jinbei told Luffy that BB is an unknown quantity at IP, BB to me is to remain a mystery until we see what he is really capable of.
Another point I forgot about, even Jinbei mentioned about BB, and he didnt even know he had a DF at that time too.
: My bro is dead. He's gone! But he's there on my back, and here in my heart! He lives on as a part of me! If you're gonna dig, dig to the heavens! No matter what's in my way I won't stop!! Once I've dug through...it means that I've won! Just who the hell do you think I am? I'm Simon. I'm NOT my bro! I'M ME!! SIMON THE DIGGER!
: Your drill is the drill that will pierce the heavens!
