No, I don't believe you should see any differences there.

The OpenType Arabic enhancements relate to "extended" Arabic characters 
added since Unicode 2.0; some examples include the SUBSCRIPT ALEF mark, 
the DOTLESS BEH and DOTLESS QAF letters, the "honorific" marks at 
U+0610..0614 or thereabouts, and others. Most would be used rarely if 
at all in everyday Arabic; they're for specialized/historical use or 
for other languages that use extended forms of the Arabic script.
