Correct - that's what I thought. Now that you have pointed out that "cat
-r BASE" doesn't behave like that - and we don't know how many commands
do or don't - I might change my mind.
(I keep saying "what about the other commands?". 'cat' and 'diff' are
important but 'export' and 'merge (from)' and 'copy (from)' and
'proplist' and the rest need to agree too.)

Would you mind extending your script to test the other commands? As I
mentioned before, 'diff' supports both ways and I don't trust 'cat'.
Because 'cat' doesn't work on directory trees, it has not had much
real-world testing for consistency with 'merge' and 'export' and so on -
people would not be so likely to notice any inconsistencies.
