Except that I don not think that they are the same. One is yogh. The other is long-tailed-z.

In modern Scots, there is a grapheme which sometimes represents /j/ and sometimes represents /x/. It is yogh. It is not two different characters. In English and in Cornish, there is a grapheme which sometimes represents /k/ and sometimes represents /s/. It is cee. It is not two different characters.
