If you’re talking about which parts of the group they have access to, etc., then you’re not talking about removing them, let alone banning them. You’re talking about some sort of temporary suspension.
A lot of this is semantics (what do you and the OP mean by ‘ban’). But in groups.io, ‘ban’ means they’re removed and can’t even reapply for membership. And if and when their membership is restored, they’re starting from zero and treated like a brand-new member (except that their Activity History is not wiped out). So I think what we’re all really talking about is a temporary ‘suspension’ of some sort, and for clarity in this discussion I would suggest sticking to that term. Because ‘ban’ has a specific meaning here.
