not sure what it means as it suggests perhaps some change was made between perhaps different production cars. but i'm not sure what to make of this.
IMHO, the problem is not lack of oil, but either a bad sensor or the pressure is somehow off. i have never had a car where the dipstick isn't correct. that wouldn't make sense at all, IMHO.
and even if the car is down 3/4 qt, it seems a bit overkill to warn the driver at that level. the car should function just fine with 3/4 qt down, or even significantly more. (i'm not endorsing this, just saying...)
agreed i doubt there is anything physically wrong with the engine. Maybe the parameters on the ECU are incorrect in measureing when the warning light for the pressure should be turned on. Of course wouldnt hurt to put a sandwich plate under the oil filter and attach remote sensor to measure the oil pressure. (one of my future mods just have to figure out where to mount it.
