So I just had one of my HomePod's replaced by Apple and noticed that the model number is actually different than my old one. nqhw2ll/a compared to mqhw2ll/a. Do the replacement models have a different model number or was there potentially a minor hardware update?

I recall a precedent for this when the iPod would change model numbers mid cycle. Nothing was different except for part suppliers.

Might be same hardware with some BIOS and Firmware upgrades that wouldn't really affect much.
