Pmag follower vs. Pmag follower.

Having done some research on AR .223/5.56 magazines lately, there seems to be some contradiction as to Aluminum magazines with Pmag followers and Polymer Pmag magazines with Pmag followers.

What I have garnered from internet searches into the subject, it seems that there are some people who have had failures to lock back on an empty mag with Polymer Pmag magazines that they have attributed to the Pmag follower in them being "too short" to allow a good purchase on the bolt catch. Their apparent remedy is to replace the .223/5.56 bolt catch with a bolt catch intended for a 9mm AR.

However, there does not seem to be a problem with Aluminum magazines that have been fitted with Pmag followers.

What gives? Are not all Pmag followers the same? Why should the followers be a problem in Polymer magazines but not the Aluminum magazines. Enlighten me here.
