Default dado blade, box joint blade differences

Hello folks,
Is there any difference between using a dado blade and using a blade that is advertised as being dedicated to making box joints? Would one cut a cleaner and squarer bottom or is it just a marketing ploy to get us to spend money.
I have a Freud dado blade set.
any help will be appreciated.
thanks

Well, I guess no one knows the answer. I did find out on another forum that there is a difference and the box joint blade gives a squarer bottom.
thanks anyway and have a good holiday season.

Something I've wondered about also. Sorry I didn't see this post earlier.
I always thought a dado set makes a pretty square cut.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

I'd also guess (?expect?) that the saw kerf is probably closer to a true 1/8" or whatever it is advertized as being, instead of it being a nominal value. In my perusing I remember seeing a saw blade comparison test where some premium "regular" kerf blades were actually about half way between 1/8" (full) and 3/32" (thin) kerf.
