XF 1.3 What's the difference between a moderator and a user in a group with moderator perms?

    I've wondered this for awhile now, is there any difference between these two scenarios?

    1. User is made a super moderator via /admin.php?moderators/ and is assigned certain permissions when being created.
    - or -
    2. User is placed into a user group that already has moderator permissions.

    To me, they both have the same permissions and can do the same thing. However, option 2 doesn't make them show up in the moderators list or in the moderator log. Is there any other difference(s)? Thanks.

    All moderators must be made a moderator via the ACP, this marks them as staff internally and will open up a few moderating systems that aren't available regardless of having permissions or not.
