Picture styles in canon t3i

Hello everyone, so I just realized about the picture style settings in the t3i for the first time today. I was reading this online article about how shooting a flat picture style in photos or videos can help with post processing by giving you more dynamic range. i also learned about technicolor cinestyle picture profile. I installed it and saw that the settings it uses are:

0 sharpness, -4 contrast, -2 saturation, 0 color tone

My question is what is the difference if I just set the custom settings to the exact cinestyle settings in camera? for example, i change the "standard" picture style to 0 sharpess, -4 contrast, -2 saturation, and 0 color tone. Is there a difference between the 2 profiles? Thanks!

p.s. i know that picture styles do not matter if you shoot RAW. i was just curious about cinestyle settings vs in camera custom settings.
