Because Family Finder and Y-DNA37 are two totally different tests that are examining totally different things.

Mmmm, it look like I had matches from other people with Y-DNA. Guess I better do some studying!! Thanks!!

It means those people (the ones that match you in Family Finder) also had a YDNA test done. It's just a way the list has of letting you know what other tests they took.

People who match me see a YDNA icon next to my name. It doesn't mean they match me on YDNA but it shows them that I had that test done.

If you use Advanced Matching you can choose both Family Finder and YDNA and exclusively look at those who match in both tests.. (if you had a YDNA test that is plus Family Finder).
