Are you sure that the two numbers quoted are calculated in the same way ?
Are they peak or average or windowed-average ?
Or even refer to the same signal quality indicator ?

Assuming you are comparing like with like, since some frontends with
silicon tuners have adaptive/tracking filtering, it's possible that the
Linux driver does not use the manufacturer's best algorithm for tuning.
