That's because early DK machines as a test and stuff still had the Japanese plate art around the monitor saying Jumpman. Later ones (I've seen both cabs) have it say Mario. So I am right about this, it's just that Nintendo and that whole Mario Segali landlord homage thing is why Jumpman got a real name (since that dude looked like Jumpman.)
