Lemme take a crack at it. Daily = on a daily basis : on a day-to-day basis
Talented author Siegfried Giedion wrote, "[...] life ... lived on an aimless, day-to-day basis." On a less than customary basis he might have written, "daily life ... aimlessly lived" if he so desired. Or he might have come up with something along the lines of "aimless life ... lived daily."
I think you can write or say, "kept on a regular basis" as well as "regularly kept" and still never notice the difference.
Therefore, anyone writing or saying, "kept on a daily basis" would have meant, "daily kept" all the same.
I get paid on an hourly basis = I get paid every hour on the hour? No?
