Hm.. Debian provides file with different between package from repository and original version. I cannot find it in RHEL..

// e.g. echo hasn't difference from original in Debian ) i guess, it's in RHEL too

Echo is quite universal across distros. I doubt there are any differences between Debian, RHEL, or whatever else. If there are any differences, they probably won't be anything notable to the end-user.
