Dictionaries think they are pretty much identical. But for these pairs of sentences, when I read the first couple, B implies to me that the subject is not particularly in accordance with the rules, but that he complies with them to avoid trouble. A implies that it respects the rules and also approves them within the framework of its principles. Very little of what I can see. It depends on the definitions of the words and/or how they are used in a familiar way. 1b. Just because the rules and his behavior were consistent in what was needed and what was done. 2a &2b. His behavior did not match his smile, nor did his behavior consult his smile, and then behaved accordingly, both fake. 1a. He and the rules did not agree on anything, in fact or tacitly, so false. .
