Scanning software deals with negatives versus positives differently due
to the orange tint that many color negatives get. Also lots of different
auto correction. This becomes problematic with cross processed film.

A point to make is that most scanners will produce roughly the same
results, it's up to the software on how it is interpreted before it gets
fed into a file format.
