DBC tables: Teradata V15.10 vs Teradata V15, are they exactly the same?

I just observed that the tables in DBC are exactly the same in Teradata V15.10 and Teradata V15. I can see that all the new features of Teradata V15.10, requiring changes in DBC tables are already accomodated in the V15 DBC tables. Just need a confirmation, if this is correct? 

(this is useful for checking if anything in my existing inhouse reports will change post the V15 to V15.10 upgrade)

Hi Piyush,

afaik modifications to the dbc-tables are only done for xx.0 releases, i.e. 12.0, 13.0, 14.0, 15.0, the next changes will be in 16.0.

You might find (reserved for future use)  tables like LoadTablesInfoTbl or columns like ExtraFieldx in DBQL-tables, which are unused in xx.0.0 but might be populated in a later release.
