Are the ownership or permissions on the installed file different when
using one vs. another?

Are there timing issues between the unload/reload in the daemon, and the
change of contents of the inode?  If so you might see what appear to be
differences caused by the installation tool that you use, but are
actually random errors based on the timing issue.

Food for thought.
