If I recall correctly kingdom law used to state that a grant would be given
when a landed baron stepped up. I don't recall if the court baroncy at step
down was required by law.
On the overall issue I agree with His Excellency. Just the way we refer to
people lines things up for us. If a gentle is a Knight and a Baron we say
Baron Sir Soandso or Duke Sir Soandso. When addressing them we would be more
likely to say Your Excellency or Your Grace if being formal than just saying
Sir. In most situations a Baron is a Baron is a Baron but if we were
specific maybe Current landed behind Viscounts Retired Landed behind them
and solely Court behind Non-Royal Peers.

Didn't there used to be a requirement, which was removed, that retiring
landed barons received court baroncies? I believe it was removed so as not
to tie the hands of the royalty in that area...
I don't believe I have old copies of Kingdom Law, so there is no way for me
