It might be that they add something to it, like caramel coloring or something that makes it not gluten-free. I have a gluten-free cookbook that says Lundberg brand brown rice syrup is gluten free. So I suppose it depends on the brand...

Last time I tried a brown rice syrup it made me "gluten-sick"! But, I don't remember the brand!

A great Rice Krispies sub, by Erehwon (pretty sure WIDEly enjoyed by celiacs), has it, as does my hazelnut milk.
I've never had a problem w/ either, nor w/ any other product w/ brown rice syrup.
I've also never heard of it having gluten.
And I'm really quite surprised to see others looking to blame it for glutening symptoms.
I've always thought the syrup itself is made from brown rice & brown rice only, tho it's often in products w/ a long list of ingred.
Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.
Gluten-free since 12-03
Dairy-free since 10-04
Soy-free since 5-07

Brown rice syrup is a sweetener derived by culturing cooked rice with enzymes (usually from dried barley sprouts) to break down the starches, then straining off the liquid and cooking it until the desired consistency is reached. The final product is roughly 50% soluble complex carbohydrates, 45% maltose, and 3% glucose. The glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream immediately, while the maltose takes up to one and a half hours to be digested (see glycemic index), and the complex carbohydrates take from two to three hours, providing a steady supply of energy. Rice syrup has a shelf life of about a year, and once opened, should be stored in a cool, dry place.

Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

In regards to brown rice syrup, it is known to be high in arsenic even in organic foods. It is something to be avoided. Rice flour also has arsenic in it and how much depends on where it is grown.
