Sort of. Loadbsd is started from after the AmigaOS init scripts, the bootblock
obviously before, so the amount of drivers etc. loaded is different. Some old
memory boards do NOT autoconfigure, but are only added to the memory list by
some initialization program; you need to use loadbsd with them, or boot
AmigaOS first, then soft reset, if you want to use the boot block.

The one you need to see symbolic values when you start the kernel debugger
