Question upvotes were recently changed in value from +5 to +10: see We’re Rewarding the Question Askers.

Question: Does the recent question reputation change affect question bans?

No, it doesn't. While the blocks are partly based on voting, it is based on the votes themselves - the amount of reputation gained/lost has no effect on how the block operates.

However, gaining a sufficient amount of reputation could cause the user to appear more trustworthy overall, which could get them past some other rate limits.

IIRC question ban doesn't work on reputation, but rather one's question history, including up/down numbers. So whatever value a question upvote worths, the mechanism of question bamming remains unaffected.
