HUD Elements cannot be re-created from and for a Player when they got swapped even certain conditions are met

A user discovered a Bug regarding to the creation of HUD Texts/Elements, the following scenario was reproduced by that User and me as this:

On Live:
Player initially spawns. Presses button, creates the HUD. Player gets moved to another team - the HUD is gone. But when the button is pressed, the HUD is created again just like when the player initially spawned. In my book - everything how it should be.

On PTR:
Player initially spawns. Presses button, creates the HUD. Player gets moved to another team - the HUD created earlier is NOT gone. But when the button is pressed, the HUD created earlier vanishes and a new one is visible only for a split second and then vanishes. Pressing the button again - HUD gets created and immediately vanishes.

The HUD should be able regardless of Team swaps to be created again except the max entity count for these is reached.
