We received the following from one of our users through the Android support email:

The first image is from the app, second is from the website. I'm signed in on both. If I was a confirmed user (which I am not, the website is correct), I assume this would stop me from doing things I could only do with that permission level. I have still been able to do basic edits, and they've been credited to my account, but I guess this part is weird.

The root cause here is that templates like {{If autoconfirmed}} use the autoconfirmed-show and unconfirmed-show CSS classes (among others), which are set to their defaults in MediaWiki:Common.css and MediaWiki:Mobile.css and then overridden in MediaWiki:Group-autoconfirmed.css. Similar things hold for the other groups. As far as I can tell, the app doesn't load this CSS
