[bioontology-support] Question about "synonyms" in LOINC

Can you help me understand these 3 different terms from LOINC for "Blood Pressure"? They all map to the same CUI (is that the UMLS ID?) but seem to have 3 unique LOINC IDs

I'm wondering why they differ, where they come from, and why they do not render within the hierarchy of LOINC- selecting them after searching shows them as a sibling of top level concepts. (see below)
While I'm asking, can you also tell me how "Associated with" is populated? It too differs between the 3.
