Using Openfire 3.9.3 (using the exe installer on Server 2012 R2 and an embedded database) and MUCService plugin 0.2.2, I’ve run into an issue that may be a duplicate of an open bug (see links at the bottom of this message).

If I perform this GET operation, the values (other than date and name) of the two rooms are identical:
These threads discussion an issue that is very similar to my observations (though their rooms were created via the xmpp client not the MUCService plugin).
