The other is appreciative, that of a man who would "chase" a BBW due to his sincere personal preference.
I agree it can be any of these three, but I've seen it most commonly applied to describe guys who prefer bigger girls. I've actually never heard it used pejoratively as you've described. I've heard other derogatory terms that describe that behavior, but in my experience "chubby chaser" is a somewhat benign descriptive term for guys like me.
