Years ago, Nikon implemented a practice of encrypting their white balance settings to make it difficult for others to work with their raw files and force people to use their software. Some hacked their encryption, whereas Adobe and Nikon eventually came to an agreement that Nikon would provide the means for Adobe to get white balance info via a Nikon-provided app. This happened because Nikon got a significant black eye in the process. How white balance info is displayed in different programs varies because they work with a variety of camera bodies, and you'll find that different brands and different models are all displayed differently in different raw converters. It doesn't necessarily mean the visual results are different. It just means the temperature and tint settings that are displayed differ.

What's happening with Linwood's white balance doesn't have anything to do with this interesting artifact of raw processors. It's something else yet to be determined.
