Shouldn't Raw and JPEG be 100% identical right out of the camera?

RAW is not an image..

The RAW file is simply data from the sensor. It is not an image that is ready to be displayed. If you "see" a RAW image, you're actually seeing a jpeg preview created by software from the RAW file. If you want the RAW file to look like the out-of-camera jpeg, you have to set your RAW developing software (eg. CameraRAW, Lightroom, Photoshop) to use your camera's profile. This is usually found in settings, generally under the "profiles" tab somewhere
