We are not sure we understand what exactly the issue is when using the DisplayMemberPath and TextSearchPath of the control. In the scenarios where the properties are bound to the same value or to different values there are no unexpected behaviors observed in the latest version of RadAutoCompleteBox control.
I recorded and attached to my response a short video showing how the scenario run on our side. Please let us know if we have missed something.
