No difference really you could say matured in Bourbon Barrel and finished in Sherry Hogshead or Port Pipe.
Distillers seemed to have moved to the word wood though. This emphasis on wood maybe highlighting the obvious connection to wood maturation and not confuse people with cask sizes.
At the end of the day it is pretty much marketing speil anyway.
And back to the original question: The language is full of such seemingly illogical shortcuts. One may be asked, for example, to state a preference for sherry or bourbon, when one actually wants a single-malt Scotch whisky.
