Because you're querying the emacs in the chroot not outside the chroot.  In 
the case of rpm, the rpm _outside_ the chroot was used to populate the 
chroot, and the rpm database version that winds up in said chroot does not 
match the version of rpm that gets installed inside the chroot.  emacs won't 
have this problem.
