The procedure is described in the Community Guide.
(https://subversion.apache.org/docs/community-guide/releasing.html#rolling-release)

Tarballs are rolled from the branch, the RM tests and signs them, and then
creates a tag. Existing tarballs follow this pattern as well. Hence, the
differences you mentioned are expected.
