The passneger version will have the stretched upper deck, the freighter will not. So, given that the upper deck is heavier, the two planes would have a different center of gravity. By stretching the freighter the designers compensate for that.
Hope this helps,

From what I have read, the big reason for the 2 sizes is the weight and balance. Since the freighter versionlacks the longer hump, they have to add more in the front then they would with the pax version.
