As it was explained in the bake-off: the disclaimer (second paragraph in the license text shown in https://spdx.org/licenses/HPND.html) is all enclosed in square brackets ("[...]"), and therefore was considered optional. The same happens with some individual words ("and", "that", etc.) of the first paragraph.
Therefore some text matching only the first paragraph can definitely match the complete license. That was the case found.
Yes, once this is correctly rendered in a template, this would be much more obvious.

Hi All,This all make sense. The only point is that the licenses are not the same, but are similar: the HPND has an additional warranty disclaimer.
So I am not sure why this would ever be an issue matching-wise and this may not warrant a note in the license.
