I don't see anything there that says that "" and 
"" are different for search engines.

This is just some random stuff you can find on the Internet.
It doesn't mean that there is any science, research or knowledge behind it.

And on top of that, you're missing one important thing:
"" translates to "/something",
"" translates to "/something/",
but both:
"" and "" translate to "/".
