The GRASS provider/plugin are separate from the Processing plugin use of GRASS. 
 They can run off the same or different installations of GRASS.  Processing 
runs GRASS tools to process data in any format.  The plugin/provider allows 
QGIS to view GRASS data and also run GRASS tools on GRASS data.

The plugin is configured from the Plugins-GRASS menu.  The default is compiled 
into GRASS.  Copy the path from the Processing options and paste it into the 
GRASS plugin options.
