CD rip will contain dither that will (depending on the signal) take some of the bitrate to be encoded. Apple recommends that masters for iTunes are 24 bit undithered so theoretically the encoder spends more bits encoding actual HF signal rather than dither.
I'm not claiming this is audible or impacts perceived quality. I just say the resulting AAC files in many cases will be different.
