Default Touring Brakes vs Base Brakes

Does a Touring model with the Sports Package have different brakes than a Base Model with the Sports Package?

I thought they were the same, but I was on Nissan's site and it looked like the Touring model comes with better brakes.

Only two sets of brakes, non-sport package or sport package. Touring is just for luxury upgrades.
