My guess is that the issue is related to this one:
(GRASS does not write AUTHORITY parameter (the EPSG code) to GeoTIFFs, thus 
QGIS makes a guess where it takes the first matching CRS (the ID number of the 
assigned EPSG code is lower than the original), I presume...).

I will update and accordingly...

Hi Nikos,
this is a known and long standing issue. Please search the relative ticket and 
see if you can add further details. It would be very useful if you could 
support its solution.
All the best.
