Yes, brewtarget does take absorption into account. On the most recent versions (this is an old thread, so I'm not sure if you are still using v1.2.3 or not), it is the third field from the bottom on the equipment editor.
I believe the difference between the two profiles is that the "ideal" profile has no kettle to fermenter losses.
