bbPress uses as a forum roles only its own built-in roles: bbp_participant, bbp_spectator, etc. bbPress processes them separately from other existing roles. Thus any other role with bbPress user capabilities is shown as a custom role, not a forum role.
It does not matter, as finally, user permissions are defined as a simple sum of user capabilities included into all roles granted to this user.
