it could also be the LUT (look up table) for the spot color renders it a different cmyk value than the cmyk build, which could come down to a bug in the software.
Similar to the difference between Quark's spot color to cmyk and Indesign's spot to cmyk conversion. They both use different LUTs.

That is what I'm thinking. It could be a similar issue a few years ago with our proofing rip. It was not up to speed with newer spot color names and some old ones and would output certain spots incorrect. And it would do it differently using the same spot name out of Quark and Indy.
