I believe your sister-in-law's camera could have the camera AF/M focus switch turned to the "M" position which explain the auto focus mode indicator but not the absent exposure compensation indicator.

Good call on the lens being set to manual (M) focus. That would explain it.

The in-camera meter (along with f-stop, shutter speed and ISO) displays on my top LCD for only a brief time after turning the camera ON, turning on the light or half-depressing the shutter release. After about 10 seconds those displays go away. It's similar to the behavior of the same displays in the viewfinder.
