Does shade number in porcelain tile mean the same as dye lot?

29 days ago

We had some 24" x 48" porcelain tiles installed in a new house. The installers changed the tile size to 12" x 24" in the bathrooms. To us, they look like different colors.

I took pictures of the 2 sized boxes and see that the shade is slightly different, but noticable, on each. Large has shade of C48 and small shows A50. Is that the problem?

Here is the pic of the large next to the small tiles (not grouted obviously). I put a small tile on top of the large ones to really see the color difference. Am I crazy?
