I think there is a very, very, VERY brief window of time where you have joined the group but are not protected by the group finder. So the normal group mechanics work, by which I mean the group leader can simply remove you from the group without a vote.

If you had been removed by vote kick, the message is closer to "you have been removed from the group finder by vote kick. Reason: xxxxx". The "person x removed you from the group" is what you get in normal group mechanics.

EDIT: I consider this to be a bug, and the fact you had a debuff to be a side effect of it. My guess is some server-side logic that went to update your status as being in a GF group, but found you not in a group at all, and figured you left and gave you a debuff.
