IMO they're different designations for what's meant to be the same ship. In real life, they just made a model with more detail.

Voyager explicitly called a K'tinga-class ship a D7 in "Prophecy". The undetailed D7 was given the same patterning as the K'tinga in "Trials and Tribble-ations" and TOS-Remastered's new CG.

Saying they're different classes is like insisting Saavik underwent extensive plastic surgery between STII and III to explain away her recasting.
However looking at USN and RN warships over the past century you get the impression that the slightest change only recognizable to professional sailors was needed to have an entirely new class of ship or even change a designation from frigate to destroyer to cruiser
