What Cookie is passed to the login page?

If the server sends a new value for an existing cookie, then JMeter
will send the new value - the old value will be lost. This is what
browsers do as well.

The question is - why is the login page returning a different cookie?
That depends on the server application and possibly some headers that
are sent or not sent by JMeter.
