Not quite the same, but the classic space logo was reuesed/modified in a Space Police set as a statue and reworked onto a jacket design torso used widely in the City Series (it even comes in classic red and I think white). Also the second Blacktron symbol was used in a Space Police set and in the Minifigure collection Cyborg/Space Villain. So it's not an unheard of practice for TLG,in the 2000s, to reuse previously created design elements. Perhaps to help maintain copyrights/trademarks? or an appeal to AFOLS to buy newer sets?
