nginx.conf is your individual configuration for your webserver/application. 
Different (linux) distributions or products (which use nginx as part of their stack) might have different nginx.conf files and might place them in different system locations and could be split in different parts. 

Often the provided configuration is only as a sample.

In short - there is no sense in comparing two configuration files as those might serve for different purposes.

Unless you meant something specific?
