This useful tool determines whether or not an eBay auction listing has or USED TO HAVE a Buy It Now Price.
In the 'old days', once a bid was placed (and usually when the reserve wass met) the Buy It Now price wass now longer available.
Now Buy-It-Now prices stay around a lot longer. When they disappear is often dependent on a number of things, but as a general rule on collectible auctions they often disappear after the bid price reaches 50% of the buy-it-now price.
Once a Buy It Now price is no longer available, eBay does not show it on the listing anymore since it isn't available and would just be confusing for most users.
