I believe the difference has been explained in this thread.
Med C is a correction you add to a much larger C. The large C forces the L
current to be almost uniform.
Near resonance the L current is not uniform hence the difference in L and
self C between low frequency and fr..
Mathematically its impossible to represent all the responses (poles and
zeros to infinity) with a single resonance that is accurate at low frequency
and near fr.
Its like trying to represent one of your multi resonant networks with the
first resonance and expecting it not to have errors.

Which of the above do you not except and or do not see?

Consider this. Looking in to the base near resonance you see L and Cmed in
series or so you might conclude from the Cmed models.
But at low frquencies you see only Cintrinsic, but you should see Cmed!!!!!.
