Just throwing it out there that, if it's to compensate for refreshrates, it should probably be named "anti-flicker" and not anti-banding. If I see banding in reference to images, I generally associate it with the image not being properly blended and each separate shade being easily identifiable.

Does anyone have an old CRT monitor or tube TV they can try 'off' vs '50, 60, or auto' with? Submit the results, pics or it didn't happen. I don't know if this is the case

Banding is pattern of vertical line in photo. And banding is digital imaging artifact. And banding happens in some extreme or special exposure or conditions. To avoid these pattern you can use Anti-banding feature of camera.

Alright, necroing in...

My device is Yu Yureka CM12.1. But what I've noticed is that the Anti-banding option doesn't change anything when I take the picture of, say my led monitor. But changing the ISO setting does. If we set ISO manually to a higher value like 800, bands will make the image ugly. Even lesser ISO values have banding, but to a small degree. Setting an Auto ISO mode solves the issue. I don't know the technical reasons behind it.

Here's a photo of my led monitor with ISO set to 800:

And here's the same frame in Auto ISO:
