It seems that these two commands do exactly the same thing... - So where's the difference?


In KOMA \chapapp is just \@chapapp, which is a macro that is normally (and probably also in KOMA) \chaptername unless you are in an appendix, in which case it is \appendixname.

This way \chapter can easily have two different names without having to duplicate code.
