[solved] Need info on the differences between orders place from the admin and frontend.

Currently when an order is placed from the frontend, once it had been shipped and invoiced, its status is set to complete.
If the order was created from the admin section, once it has been shipped and invoiced, its status is set to closed.

I’m looking for information as to whether these two “types” of orders are, indeed, different types of orders and handled separately.
I’m also looking for information regarding which files deal with setting the status of an order during the invoice process.

Edit:
It turns out I made a change that caused the system to behave differently in these two instances. Normally they should be treated the same.
The lesson I learnt through this is that saving orders multiple times can cause the order status to update multiple times.
