It seems that the argument na doesn't remove the NaN with str.contains (see previous issue).

Using similar to example in test added for na functionality:

In [1]: values = Series(['om', NA, 'foo_nom', 'nom', 'bar_foo', NA, 'foo'])

In [2]: values.str.contains('foo', na=False)
0    False
1      NaN
2     True
3    False
4     True
5      NaN
6     True

In [3]: values.str.startswith('foo', na=False)
0    False
1    False
2     True
3    False
4    False
5    False
6     True

From Stackoverflow question.
