30” v 36” induction range (total cubic volume???)

Help! I’ve gone down the induction range rabbit hole. Luckily, based on frequency of posts here, I’m in good company.

I’d like to replace my 36” gas range with a 36”induction range — and take advantage of year end sales. However, it appears that the total cubic feet oven capacity is larger in 30” ranges. I’ve spent hours comparing both 30” and 36” units. Can anyone help me understand how this is possible?

Comparisons below are representative.
For example -

30”
CAFE total 6.7 CU feet (2.4 upper, 4.4 lower)
LG total 7.3 CU Feet (3 upper, 4.3 lower)
GE PROFILE 5.3 CU Feet

36”
ELECTROLUX - 4.4 CU Feet
BOSCH 800 - 3.7 CU feet
FISHER PAYKEL - 4.7 CU feet
SMEG - 4.5 CU feet
BERTRAZZONI - 5.7 CU feet
FULGOR - 5.7 CU feet

I’d be grateful for any insights and recommendations. I’m open to both sizes. We cook almost every night and often have 10 around the table. Unfortunately, I need to focus on slide in ranges. I’d love to do a cook top and wall ovens - but not this year.

I’m leaning toward the 30” Cafe double oven (budget is $5k ish).

Thank you for sharing your expertise.
