As far as I understood, in this specific case are exactly the same.
Differences between "Constraint Force" and "Total Force" of Weld Joint

Which is the difference between Constraint Force and Total Force of Welded Joint in Simscape Multibody?
Constraint are defined as "Constraint forces/torque counter translation/rotation on the locked axes of the joint while allowing it on the free axes of its primitives." but in a welded joint there are no "free axes", since are all locked. In my opinion these two signals are basically equal.
Thank you and best regards, A
