Why do different pure cotton shirts suggest that they be ironed at very different temperatures?

I have 100% cotton shirts with labels that say they should be ironed at one dot (110°c), others that say two dots (150°c) and others three dots (200°c). Why such a range of suggestions for (seemingly) identical fabrics?
Note that I am not asking what temperature I should iron cotton at in general - please don't derail. I am an experienced and capable ironer and am only asking about this discrepancy in labelling!
