ALL is supposed to mean all todo keywords (= TODO, ANALYSIS, FEEDBACK, etc.).
TODO is one of them, in your case.

Please provide us with an ECM (complete minimal example) to help us reproduce
your problem.

You can hard-code in that file the authorized TODO states with the #+SEQ_TODO

First remark: migrate away from "remember". Use the new interface called

Then, try to reproduce your problem. But, it shouldn't exist: you can change
the state, within a capture session, of the TODO keyword:

- with C-c C-t, as you say
- with shift + left/right arrow.
