Because the default for the weights that you invoke with [w=...] is not the same, "analytic" for -reg- and "frequency" for -mean-

I found an weird outcome using -mean- with weights
(versions 9 and 10). I just one to know the average
with its SE. Using -mean- without weights I got the
same mean and SE as using -reg-. However, when I
used weights results are not same in terms of SE.

sysuse auto
set seed 1234
gen tmp=uniform()
gen factor=round(1/tmp,1)
mean price
mean price [w=factor]
reg price, nohead
reg price [w=factor], nohead

Thanks for your time,
