The problem here is this:
  gstreamer stores "bandX" in the "name" field for each of the bands
  gstreamer stores the frequency in the "nick" (nickname) field
  phonon EffectParameter doesn't provide access to nickname field, but does give access to "name"
  amarok uses phonon EffectParameter to fill in the frequency values using the "name" field.
So amarok labels the bands "band0" to "band9"

To fix this, the following needs to happen:
1) modify Phonon EffectParameter so it can also return the "nick" field
2) modify amarok to label bands using "nick" field, instead of "name" field.

This backend for Phonon is no longer maintained or supported, and has not been for quite some time. Please use the VLC backend instead--which is the recommended and maintained replacement--and see if you can reproduce the issue there. If you can, please open a new bug report at https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=phonon-backend-vlc.

Thanks a lot!
