You haven't said why you would think they should be similar.
Anyway, for video encoding the point of the motion vectors is to
minimize encoding cost.
There are slightly different algorithm in use (e.g. in frame
interpolation filters) when the goal is to detect motion.
Still there are a lot of motion search algorithms available and
you can try different ones.
Though xvid is an external project and this is not really
the best place to ask about it, and I suspect that the FFmpeg
encoder actually gives you a wider choice of algorithms.
