It's interesting that a goose that someone raised would fly away and run with the wild birds. Is that common? Or do people even catch geese and band them with their own bands?
Geese are easily caught when they are in molt. Someone probably did just that and put their own band on and then released the goose. I'm guessing they wanted to see if the goose would stick around with the hopes of shooting it in the future.

If the DWR or another legitimate group banded it then it would have a metal numbered band.
