Look here at Autobiographer on main OR Stack Exchange:

Complete "About Me" section of user profile.

Awarded 484 times.

Look at the meta site's equivalent of the badge:

Awarded 166 times.

This same thing happens on other sites.

Looking at my other account that can't participate in the meta on one site, its bio on meta certainly exists. How are there users who have edited their main but not meta profiles?

A meta site profile is created only when the user visits meta.

So, it's not that they edited main but not meta -- it's just that they don't have a meta profile.
