Heat capacity affects the quantity of heat BTP assumes will be lost to the vessel when the hot water is added. If you want the numbers to line up, you should make sure the heat capacity of the mash tun is the same in both the strike temp calculator and the mash-in step for the schedule. Hope that helps.
