The difference is upstream name: in v1 you use your domain (the 
same as in proxy_redirect), while in v2 you use upstream{} block 
name.  Upstream name is used in Host header in request to upstream 
by default[1], and this may (and likely will) cause your backend 
to return different redirects.

BTW, proxy_redirect default will use upstream name as well, and 
this should handle such situations transparently.  See [2] for
