IIRC, it's due to "password" vs "keyboard-interactive"
(a.k.a. challenge-response) authentication being used. In most setups
they amount to pretty much the same thing, the relevant difference here
is that for "password" the local client (i.e. 'ssh') does the password
prompting, whereas for "keyboard-interactive" it's the remote server (in
practice normally a PAM module there rather than sshd itself) that does
it. I don't remember which of them is using which prompt, and you should
probably not rely on the prompts indicating one or the other anyway.
