Results differ when coded as linear in CBC/HB

I have 4 attributes, each with 2 levels (values 1 and 2). The results I get using dummy coding and attributes as part worth differ with the results using dummy coding, and attributes as linear. I was expecting same results since each attributes has two levels and dummy coding considers the last level as reference level. Could you please explain. Thanks.

I would expect that, too.  Can you send me the utilities you get out of the two models so I can get a sense of what you're seeing?

Thank you.
