iLife major updates are not free.

If you've had iLife 11 prior to upgrading, I believe that is what you are saying, you shouldn't have to pay for it again. My App Store automatically recognized that I have them installed.

There's something wrong. I bought a Late 2011 Macbook Pro that came with iLife 2011, and when I logged into iCloud with it (under OS X 10.7) it automatically registered iPhoto, iMovie (which I had purchased previously), and Garage Band to my account. I swapped the hard drive out and was able to re-download all of those apps for free from my iTunes account.

There's one thing that I can think of. Did you wipe the iLife applications and then wipe the hard drive without logging into iCloud (or your iTunes store account) first? If so, the applications wouldn't have registered to your account. You mentioned that the other two are available for download for free, but did you purchase those previously? It seems strange that only one application of the three wouldn't register to your account.
