continuation depends on move order

In the attached screenshot, the moves 31... gxh3 and 31... d4 are evaluated differently, and the corresponding variations are continued differently even though they reach the same position after three plies. The different evaluations might be OK if Stockfish doesn't just do a classical minimax and takes suboptimal moves into account in the evaluation, but I would have thought that the variations should nevertheless have the same continuation after they reach the same position.
