I believe bitmap files have a certain standard as far as how to write out the bitmap header and the data itself. So I doubt that AI would invent and write its own "standard" - so to speak.

The fact that in some software you see it distorted and in others you don't, leads me to think the opposite. That it's not AI that generates incorrect bitmap data. It's how the software that you are using interprets that data. And maybe some interprets it correctly and some don't.

Just like Internet Exploder 6 was interpreting 24bit transparent PNG files incorrectly. It did not mean that the PNG files were wrong. It was a problem in IE.

If you have Photoshop, create the file there and see what happens. If not, then use the good ol' Paint - which can also create PNG files. See if you get any other results.
