I would imagine that even batteries from the same batch of a production run from one manufacturer would have slightly different terminal voltages and Amp hour capacities.
I suspect that it is true that even for lead acid batteries coming from the same production line, that the length of time they were then in storage prior to being sold could cause small changes in behaviour, but those may be magnified over the period of the battery's working life unless the charging system senses each battery separately.

Data beats opinions most times... that's my opinion, though I have no data on that.
