I'm merely pointing out that there was little effort by the production staffs of both shows to keep them in the same narrative universe.
Well, that's not surprising, since one was in syndication and the other was on UPN. There was no guarantee that viewers in any given market would be able to see both shows. So each show had to be able to stand on its own with minimal reference to the other. Recall how Buffy
crossed over heavily when they were on the same network, but the crossovers mostly ended when Buffy
switched to a different network.
