It's of course possible (even probable) that the latex exporter behaves
differently from the html exporter in this case (and probably many other
cases.) Historically, I believe the latex exporter was the first one and
in those days, each exporter blazed its own trail, so inevitably we have
a divergence of behavior. The new exporters based on Nicolas's
org-element parser will presumably behave a lot more consistently.

In the meantime, you can always override the latex behavior with
something like

#+ATTR_LaTeX: align=|r|r|l|r|l|r|

to set the alignment of each column explicitly without affecting the HTML
