The difference perhaps lies in the die punch which is used to compress the tablet, see no other difference, however please do also a professional such as a pharmacist who might have more accurate answer.

The main purpose of using a break line is so that a patient can accurately break the tablet in half if required. This is normally done if a large tablet is to be used in a child in 2 separate doses. If the dose in the tablet is such that it does not require to be broken in half then one may manufacture the tablet with out a break line.
However, some manufacturing units produce tablets with break lines depending on the availability of the die.
Rarely the break line is used for aesthetic appearance.
