Is there any difference when importing a GeoPackage into QGIS using the data source manager between using the section "Vector" and the section "GeoPackage"?

I did not see any difference so far, but this may be because my geopackages are rather simple.


In a GeoPackage file, you can store different data like vectors, raster data, even styling data and whole QGIS projects. So using the "GeoPackage" tab in the source manager allows you to inspect the different type of data and load vectors as well as rasters. Whereas using the "Vector" tab allows you to load the containing vector data as layers.
