You're comparing the expansion-time representation of a result from
`syntax-datum' (applied to an identifier) with the expansion-time
representation of a symbol. I don't see that either is required to have
anything to do with the run-time representation of a symbol (except
when library instances are shared across phases, but I agree that R6RS
need not say anything about that case).
