You are more detail oriented than I, as I didn't even catch that. So this is a "modified," not stock P228.

The only thing I can think of is at some point in time, the original grip was swapped with a Hogue and then put back on.

Or, according to this SITE:

Some details that need attention are the soft metal used in the grip screws, and the tendency for these screws to come loose if not extremely well-tightened. Fixes to these shortcomings are: use an exact-fit screwdriver when loosening or tightening the screws, replace the grip screws with hexhead grip bolts or use a Hogue or Pachmayer slip-on grip to secure the grip panels.
That is just a WAG on my part tho.

He included his phone number in the auction, so yea, I rang him up to ask questions, chatted a bit, and bought it now.
