r.out.tiff exports an image that looks like what you see in the display,
in other words, it translates the color rules of a GRASS raster to a
tiff image. The cell values of the GRASS raster are *not* exported by
r.out.gdal exports raster data (cell values) and, when possible, embeds
color rules in the metadata. The exported data may or may not look like
the GRASS display of the raster, depending on the data type and file
format choosen for export and the capabilities of the spatial data
viewer used to display the exported data.
