Responded in-line below. This will also happen with the following pairings
below. Maybe the service probe timeout is on par?

-88/tcp open  kerberos-sec Microsoft Windows kerberos-sec
+88/tcp open  tcpwrapped

-464/tcp   open  kpasswd5
+464/tcp   open  tcpwrapped

-11099/tcp open  apc-agent APC PowerChute agent
+11099/tcp open  unknown

-11100/tcp open  apc-agent APC PowerChute agent
+11100/tcp open  unknown

-464/tcp open
+464/tcp open  tcpwrapped

Don't service probes have a certain timeout for the probe response? If
so then big service latency could cause that exact mismatch also.

Brief grepping revealed the following in service_scan.h:
Which should be enough imho, if that's the right timeout value. Does
that value get dynamically adjusted along the scan?

Another reason could be that some services have resuming state
capabilities or don't recover that well upon sudden termination of a
connection, which means that the subsequent timely scans would get
unexpected results for the service probes.

As you probably noticed, my comment assumes that there is nothing
wrong with the service code, however, given a reproducible case that I
can poke at, I am glad to take a look at the issue.
For eg, for the microsoft-rdp case I would need Windows Version,

Server 2008 R2 Enterprise

Service Pack version, MSRDP client version,

RDP Ver 6.1.7600

Nmap version and on which
subsequent scan does Nmap stop reporting the Service for the port(the
last requirement must be somewhat reproducible).

Nmap 5.5.1
