You are correct that num_cmp uses the MathObject methods in the background, but I don't know how it handles being passed a MathObject directly.
Originally num_cmp expected either a perl number or a perl string as an argument. If you pass it a MathObject as in this example, I don't know if all of the attributes of the object and the context are passed to the checker.
That being said, this does not appear to be the root of the issue being discussed.
