Tracking discrepancy between acquisition report and model comparison tool

I am having the following issue:


- When looking in Analytics at the acquisition report all traffic > source / medium, for the Google AdWords campaigns source / medium = google / cpc (which makes sense as we use auto tagging)


- However when I check the model comparison tool for the AdWords campaigns I have 2 different source /medium

For search: source / medium = google / cpc

For Display: source / medium = google / display


So for my display campaigns depending on which report I am checking the source / medium dimension is different

For example for my campaign named "Display_c1" the source medium is google / cpc in the acquisition report and google / display in the model comparison tool



How is that possible that the source / medium dimension change between 2 reports ?

Does someone already experience this ?
