A high impedance source. The voltage is really there, but the source has a VERY low load capacity.

True. Voltage but almost zero current potential.

Possibly leading to inconsistent readings on different ranges of an analog meter (meter causes a different load on each range).

You are too use to professional level meters. :-) Most digital meters OP's will have low enough resistance they would be lucky to get any readings of voltage no matter what range they used. :-)
Of course you are right.
