 It is important to understand that the members endpoint is a mirror of the
 WordPress user endpoint with some BuddyPress sugar on top of it.

 Meaning that if you want to add a user and have the confirmation email
 sent, you need to use the user signup endpoint:

 That's the correct way to signup a user. The app should register the user
 using this endpoint
 and the API will send the confirmation email.

 If you want to force a user in, you can use the Members endpoint:

 No confirmation email will be sent and like you mentioned, the user will

 So I'm closing this ticket as invalid since my understanding of it is that
 you are using the wrong endpoint to get what you need.
