Fees for PPB booked flights an M&M flights

Today I booked four totally identical flights in business Germany to Austria for next year. Two of them were booked for PPB points and two were booked with M&M miles. Surprisingly the fees were very different. Those booked via PPB were 170 p.P., but those booked with M&M were 124! How can this difference be explained? Any similar experiences?

Further devaluation of PPB?

For a PPB ticket, the taxes & fees according to revenue ticket in the highest booking class of the cabin to be booked are charged (you can pretty exactly find out the amount to be paid, e.g., via the Matrix), while a part thereof is waived for a M&M ticket.
