While I'm not able to answer your question, I can shred a little light
about them not being equal. For example using a windows machine

$ man git <verb>

does not work and

$ git help <verb>

opens a webbrowser instead of a man page. Using a unix system I would
however assume that

$ man git <verb>

would work since it's the standard way of getting help on those systems.
