Captcha Quirk

So, it’s come to my attention that when you enter a captcha, the only thing that has to actually match character for character is the first word. The second one just has to match in length, but as far as I can tell, it can be any mix of characters. I heard a rumor that this was to help with some sort of automatic character recognition algorithm, but I’m not sure where I read/heard that.
