Now that I investigate it, I think it might just be the way that mp4 muxers handle the CODEC ID flag.
If you take the same h264 stream and put it into MKV it says CODEC ID = V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC in mediainfo but if you mux the exact same stream into a mp4 container it says avc1
So it is just a quirk of mp4, it is unrelated to XBMC.
At the end of the day it is the same thing, just a different name for it.
