Is there a difference between a canon to a saint at matins and a supplicatory canon to the same saint that one would do at a separate paraklesis service?

In my Serbian prayerbook (cointaning only some canons and akathists) all the supplicatory canons (e.g to st. Nicholas, to the Holy Cross, to all saints etc.) are differenat than those chanted at Matins. I suppose it's the same case with Greeks and generally byzantin-southren Orthodox . No idea for Eastern Slavs, as the service of paraklesis is done very rarely here.

BTW, I wonder, who has composed these ones in my prayerbook
