The token on top tells you which system the player belongs to, but the loyalty token is who it is loyal to. A subjugated system can still be loyal to the Rebellion. They are occupied and forced to support the Empire but they don't like it.
I believe all possibilities break down like this:
Token Type Rebel Loyal Rebel System Imperial Loyal Imperial system
None N N N N
Rebel Y Y N N
Rebel + Subjugated Y N N Y
Subjugated N N N Y
Imperial N N Y Y
Interesting way to break it down. I think that really illustrates the different playstyles for the Rebels and Empire- with the Rebels, you're hoping lot of loyalty- with the Empire, a lot of planets.
