It shows up in NEFs only. JPGs don't have it.
I use Raw Therapee, mostly.
Now for the weird part:
The camera manual states an image size of 4928 x 3264, which matches the JPGs I'm shooting. But the NEFs are 4983 x 3272..... slightly larger. The ratio is different, but even if I subtract the 35-36 pixels of the purple stripe, the ratio still doesn't match.
Shooting in either 12- or 14-bit makes no difference.

Try opening a RAW image in View NX2, that came with your camera, or can be downloaded for free...
I'll bet, and hope the stripe disappears. ONLY View NX2 and Capture NX2 can FULLY realize the data in NEFs. Your current software may not be able to read D7000 NEFs properly, and I'll bet that's the issue.
doesn't include the D7000. Also last post by the author was in January 2011. Check with him to see if an update is forthcoming, but the code freeze appears to still be in play, and the last stable version was before the D7K came out...
Capture NX 2 is a great tool, and I've lived the Capture lifecycle since V3 in the bad old days of the D1/D100. Nik is the best collaboration that has happened to the platform. For folks who haven't settled on a RAW workflow, NX 2 is not the worst way to go. YMMV...
NX2 doesn't have a lot of "bells and whistles" to it but it does a good job; especially when you consider it is free to Nikon users. I really haven't found it to be user-unfriendly but I've also read the instructions. Capture NX2 will do much more and will fully recognize all shots (especially great with NEF files); for me it does require lots of reading regarding some of its tools, controls and adjustments. Might not be able to put a talking bubble on the print but for me that's not important. Good luck with whatever you decide.
Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. <><
