There is no discrepancy here. It is just the way the plot is generated
to connect the last value in the data with the first value in the forecast.
Instead of plotting, you could just look at the data:
> tail(f using model$modeldata$data,1)
[1] -0.016112
> tail(f using model$modeldata$data,1)
[1] -0.016112
> head(f using forecast$seriesFor)
