As I understand you are asking about emulators/linux_base* ports.

They are different, just compare list of distfiles in their
Makefiles and which one you need to install depends on applications
you are going to run under Linux compatibility mode (shared libraries
dependencies for example).  Handbook has a good explanation about
Linux compatibility mode and information about installation of
additional shared libraries.  There isn't any sense to duplicate it
