Does someone have a good insight as to why this would be the case and how to explain the differences?
I once investigated one facet of this question and discovered the images differed in what font objects were included in the packaged image.
I didn't do much more research, once I identified the differences we saw in this one situation were "only"fonts. I think
the pattern had to do with what the developer ran before packaging the image, but this was several years ago (perhaps 2005!).
Look at the various .ES files generated by the packager. One of them lists the various objects included in the packaged image. This will prove helpful in your comparison.
