If needed, you can impose delivery restrictions on the group (regardless if it's Private or Public) via PowerShell:

Internal users can send emails to a Group, even if it is private.

You can hide the Group email address from the GAL by PowerShell.

Simple answer, nope
Can someone confirm this feature will not be visible when the DL's were created on-prem?

Has that one member unsubscribed from all Group emails? That would be my first guess.

Probably some replication info. If the Group is Public, he doesnt really need to be a member to interact with it. Try removing/readding him?
