The clue is in the name: if it's not Debian it's not called Debian.

Raspbian was initially created because Debian's armhf port did not work 
on the Raspberry Pi model B. It was basically just recompiling official 
Debian packages to work on the Raspberry Pi.

Various parties started creating images based on Raspbian, including the 
Raspberry Pi foundation. What *other* changes they did to those images 
one can only guess.

This is the same with all other images provided by various projects 
and/or manufacturers and/or community members.

I've seen customizations starting from changing the default bash prompt 
up to proprietary kernels (with serious security bugs) and libraries, or 
custom scripts to resize your partitions and configure your network.

It was a very happy moment for me when I could use pure Debian on my 
Pine A64 ;)

Kind regards,
