Regardless if you can sell in certain categories, you can still log into the seller dashboard and see old inventory information. That's how you know if your account has been wiped or not. I called back and spoke with another rep and they called it account wiping. Once you are no longer an active seller, you cannot be active again on the same account. The period of time is also going to become shorter, possibly 6 months according to the rep. FBA sellers are not affected. I asked about the scams with new accounts but they said that they have blocked the majority of scam accounts by flagging the origin of the seller. She said that they're stepping back from seller reputations and feedback and simply making it sell/fulfill.
FYI, I know why there's so many "New Sellers" listed on Amazon Marketplace.
I haven't sold anything in over a year. I tried to and it said I didn't have access to seller central. I went into support chat and they said I needed to speak to a Amazon phone rep. So I had them call me. They said any account that hasn't sold anything for a period of time (seemed to think a year or so) goes dormant and can never be used again. There's no way to delete the seller portion and start over again with the same email address. I can open a new account under a different email address, but I can never retrieve the previous one because I didn't sell regularly enough. My account was in good standing but they said it no longer matters. All accounts that reach dormant status can never be reactivated again.
That makes me think they're winding down the marketplace. I expect everything to be FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon) or very select seasonal sellers, but no marketplace in the future. Give it a few years but it's likely going away.
They will handle this by allowing you to trade in more items, but in many cases the payout will be a pittance.

I went to a apartment warming party for my friend a few years back. While in the bathroom, I turned my head and looked out the window at the houses nearby. This woman waved. I waved back. She gave me the thumbs up then. Her friend joined her and they both gave me the thumbs up while drinking their wine. I looked down and realized I was tall enough that they saw me while I peed. I would have walked on over except their husbands/boyfriends came over to see what they were looking at.
