 on a valid BuddyPress page", which I think it is a fair question as it's

 I think you mean "why does `is_404()` return *true*?". r-a-y's answer is
 right. We do kind of a complicated dance. WP's native page router
 (`WP::parse_request()`) interprets BP member URLs as 404s (since there is
 no WP content located at `example.com/members/boone/`, which would
 presumably be a page `boone` with a page `members` as the parent). In
 `bp_core_load_template()`, which is called from our template controllers,
 `is_404` is manually flipped back to `false` if BP determines that there
 is, in fact, BP content to look at. This means that from `parse_request`
 until `bp_screens` - run on `bp_template_redirect`, which in turn is run
 at `template_redirect` - WP thinks the current content is a 404. If
 WishList Member is also loading at `template_redirect`, it's likely that
 WishList Member is being loaded before BP has had a chance to do these

 The whole situation is not ideal. I guess I agree with r-a-y that, in the
 short term, WLM will have to work around BP in some way, either by using a
 BP function like `bp_is_user()` or by delaying its check until after
 `template_redirect:10`, though it appears that the latter suggestion will
 interfere with what r-a-y suggested in #6230. This is another problem that
 would go away with proper use of rewrite rules. In the meantime, we could
 and perhaps should try to do the `wp_query` manipulation (like
 `is_404=false`) earlier than `bp_core_load_template()`. Is that even

 There was another ticket about this very issue a couple years ago, though
 in 30 minutes of looking I was unable to find it :-/
