This is purely a (semi) educated guess but probably one of the fields is legacy field that was used in either e-reader firmware or one of the IOS/Android apps. Sometimes its probably easier to just leave it (kinda like an appendix) than remove it and risk possible unexpected weirdness -- which would include both of them needing to be identical suggesting that both of them do get used somewhere/somehow.
