In the ADP160/ADP161/ADP162/ADP163 datasheet, table 1 states IGND maximum @
Iout=10mA is 19uA, but in the figure 16 IGND @ Iout=10mA can be 100uA (when Vin
is 3.3v).

Can you clarify?


The parameters in Table 1 are only valid for the conditions stated at the top
of Table 1.  The relelvant condition here is Vin = Vout + 500mV.  Table 16
shows the ground current in dropout which, by definition, means Vin = Vout. 
The ground current is always higher in dropout.
