Lightroom Classic: Reference Mode image is always exposed above the norm

I want to report a problem in the reference view mode (Comparison of two images) in Lightrrom Classic. The reference image is always exposed above the norm. Even though the picture is not edited, it has a brighter brightness. That way I can't leave the image being edited the same, because it is always over exposed.

I can't reproduce that in Lightroom Classic 8.4 on my Mac. Can you give more details (what version of Lightroom and what OS) and perhaps show screenshots of the image in Loupe view and in Reference view?

Check your monitor color profile also...

I am using a latest version of lightroom. Updated today ... Working with a macOS Mojave version 10.14.6 
I performed the test with windows 10 and keeps the same error.

The monitor is calibrated and tested with different color profiles, and the error remains as you can see in the posted image. I don't know what I can do anymore. I tested on 3 different computers and all give the same error.

I can duplicate a "small" brightness change between the Reference and Active views in Lr 8.4 and MacOS 10.14.6.  Screen clips of the Reference and Active views show the following when brought into Photoshop and aligned and then using a Difference Blend Mode.  I can only detect the brightness change by flipping between the images in Photoshop.  Its very subtle and not enough to make a difference for me if I am using Reference View.

I work with fashion photography and the colors must be faithful to those seen in photography printed in catalog. I can't refer to an error. Even if the difference is small, there is a difference ... and to me this is a serious software error.

Does the difference disappear if you turn off the GPU acceleration from the Lr user prefs dialog?

Disabling the GPU the problem remains the same.
