Minion comes in 3 flavours : the historical Single master, the defunct
multiple master version, and nowadays a single master opentype with
three design sizes as Minion Pro Opticals.

The only one among the above mentionned named MinionPro is the OTF

Given that you found a type 1 embedded, one can imagine that the OTF
tools from Eddie Kohler were used at some point, which could explain
some of the differences.
