 When addressing an email, it's often nice to include the name as well as the address. e.g. to send to:
John Doe <john.doe@example.com>
Notes just picks the "e-mail address" field to include in the header. Generally this is just the address, so your e-mail doesn't include any names in the headers. But sometimes (depending on how the contact was created) the e-mail field in the address book includes the entire string (Name, "<"'s and address), and so you get the "nice" behaviour.
At it's simplest, the client could check whether there is a Display Name present and construct one if there is not. Even better would be if the client stopped putting the Display Name into the InternetAddress field, so that these fields were consistent between different types of contacts.

You can enter the e-mail address using the extended address format.
