Does anyone have any idea why they are so different? I wish Torque displayed battery voltage but that option is greyed out. I may need to put a recording meter on the battery and drive around.

Are the CCP terminal a valid way to check battery voltage? They are much easier to get to than the battery.
I figure the highest one is closest to actual alternator voltage- the CM one probably has some wiring losses.
BTW the voltage varies according to intake air temperature also, the PCM controls it- colder= higher voltage.
