This is common, because parts of the PROM are nowadays used for data
storage like event log (when was the system booted?), for DMI data (like
the system's serial number) or even sometimes for special configuration
options. This is not a problem, but working as expected.

You can verify this claim by trying to make a backup of your current
BIOS contents with phlash16 - you will find out that this also won't
match the vendor image.
