Questions concerning reactingFoam

i have some questions about mass conservation with reactingFoam solvers:

1. could someone please enlighten why the difference between rho and thermo.rho() can be used to calculate the continuity errors ? E.g. in the compressibleContinuityErrs.H


scalar sumLocalContErr =
      (fvc::domainIntegrate(mag(rho - thermo.rho()))/totalMass).value();

2. What is the purpose/difference between reactingFoam and rhoReactingFoam ?
