The "epsg file" is a rather pale reflection of the original
EPSG database.  I think if you went back and inspected
2166 and 2397 carefully in the original database there
would turn out to be differences that are not reflected
in the epsg file.  It may be that one is deprecated and
the other has different datum information, for instance.

But yes, it is confusing.
