Birth records for same person give different birthplaces #hungary #general

These birth two records for the same person, registered in the same town, each give a different birthplace. How did this happen and why?
The indexers interpreted the instructions differently. Both records have the preprinted headers in German, and the column in question is labeled _Wohnung der Eltern_ "residence of parents". Both are filled out with some version of Felsőzsolca, but none of the indexing fields were for parents' residence. One indexer figured that "Town Born" was the closest match, while the other thought none of the fields matched well enough and therefore put the information in "Comments".

642769 is digital film 7951968, which I think may be closer to original than not: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS8Q-19HF?i=72&cat=256275
642772 is digital film 4134117, which is an archive/district copy: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-99PH-S9J5-T?i=78&cat=256275

These birth two records for the same person, registered in the same town, each give a different birthplace. How did this happen and why? I can see that they’re from two different microfilmed volumes; what's the significance of that?
