Can you be a new player and a returning player at the same time?

I logged in with my MS account today for grins and giggles. I created the account for the Windows store release but couldn't get the game to run back then, so it has just been sitting there. I noticed something odd though. I have the little sprout new player icon, I presume because I've never actually played under the account before, but when I join a party I also get the returning player boost. Am I considered both a new player and a returning player under this account? That's what it looks like.

Do you have someone who also have Returner player icon in your party?

Because it share the buff with partymates.

@Teasa No. It was just me. There was only one other person in the party and he hasn't taken a break in a while.
