Arrow Difference With The Two Code Clearance Disks (Area 51)

There are two Code Clearance Discs in this level, both of which get dropped by MP Guards. One of them is to be used near the start of the level, and the other is to be used near the end of the level. The one that's to be used at the start of the level causes missiles to raise off a conveyor belt, enabling you to make progress. The one that's to be used at the end of the level causes the spaceship to open, enabling you to complete the level. I used to assume that both Code Clearance Discs were identical, and that either of them could be used in either mechanism. However, I've come to learn that the one that's intended to be used at the beginning only works at the beginning. And that the one that's intended to be used at the end only works at the end. Upon closer inspection, it seems that the two Code Clearance Discs are in fact different in appearance. The one that can only be used at the beginning has blue in the middle of it, whereas the one that can only be used at the end of the level has green in the middle. I thought that it's strange that the two Code Clearance Disks are different and can only work in one designated spot. In other levels, when you've got a multitude of the same item they tend to all work at any of the designated places. The Code Clearance Discs seem to be different for some reason.
