different permissions but why ??? drwxrwxrwt <---


The perm symbol t shall specify the S_ISVTX bit. When used with a file
of type directory, it can be used with the who symbol a, or with no who
symbol. It shall not be an error to specify a who symbol of u, g, or o
in conjunction with the perm symbol t, but the meaning of these
combinations is unspecified. The effect when using the perm symbol t
with any file type other than directory is unspecified.

octal is 1000 s_isvtx

try changing perms and see what :^)
