I wouldn't say misses but we have a different set of variations to
reprotest and/or they are implemented in different ways, mostly due to
historical reasons but also because (eg.) we have access to the full
machine and thus do not need to emulate some changes:

Indeed, the delta between them might be helpful for you in identifying
what is going on when testing locally. Good luck. :)
