Are you by chance confusing LAStools with libLAS?
LAStools has a partial implementation of some geotiff key reading/
writing. libLAS, which implements the command line utilities of
LAStools, uses libgeotiff for geotiff key reading/writing and provides
a much more complete implementation.
Your results will differ depending on which one (LAStools or libLAS)
you are using.
