No, it's because the long ones are multiple words (so the case
provides the word boundaries), while the short ones are a single word

Remember, what's being parsed in the code you quoted is not the
"$Foo$" substring from the file, but rather the value of the
svn:keywords property. In the file contents, we only tolerate exact
matches: "$Date$" works but "$date$" does not. But for the property
value, we wanted people to be able to do

   $ svn propset svn:keywords date foo.c

...and have it still work.
