If you mean 2.06: they are almost identical. The main differences are that 2.06 probes for the MegaSTE clock, while 3.06 probes the NVRAM and its clock. The entry point of the dispatcher will only work on 68010+ in 3.06, while the 2.06 versions check the _longframe variable. And very early in the startup code are some '030 specific initializiations in the 3.06 version (MMU for example).
GEMDOS, AES and DESKTOP are completely identical. VDI is only different in that the 3.06 contains the routines for the 8planes low-rez mode of the TT.

I know about at least one instance where 2.05/2.06 do not contain bugfix which 3.05/3.06 do:
I assume it was you who added that "#if TOSVERSION >= 0x300" into monout.c?

Sysinfo said it's build date was 5/12/90, the label on the chips themselves say 12/7/90.
