Yes, but when scrub encounters uncorrectable errors, it doesn't attempt to
correct them.  Fsck will do things like recover lost files into the
lost+found directory, and stuff like that...

So, scrub does more of one thing, and fsck does more of a different thing...
Which one you call "more" is a matter of perspective.  I would just call
them different, and each one "better" in its own way, depending on your
