The previous version showed all the members of the high council for example, this one only shows those who have signed in with an LDS account, (I know so because I'm sure only one of them has signed into the directory, the other two are family history users)
everything in MY ward shows up with full access, but elsewhere throughout the stake it's like this.
I can't explain the difference. But I guarantee that I can see all sorts of people in my stake who have not signed up with an LDS Account. I work closely with the High Council and I know that there are some of them who have never gotten an LDS Account. Yet all 12 show up.
Besides, the way this whole information flow works has nothing to do with the leadership having an LDS Account. Callings are entered in MLS, then transmitted from there to CDOL. The directory then uses CDOL to look up the people in leadership positions.
I don't know if you have access to CDOL, or can work with someone who does, but it would be interesting to know what the High Council (for example) looks like in your stake on CDOL.
UPDATE: It looks like eblood66 supplied the real answer to the issue:

Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
