Whether the coefficients and significance on x4 in two situations are the same in fact though a little difference in decimal part?

They will not be equal, because you need to partial-off the other regressors from both:

sysuse auto,clear
reg price mpg weight
predict double epsp, r
qui reg turn mpg weight
predict double epst, r
reg epsp epst
est store fwl
// Frisch-Waugh-Lovell theorem says that the coefficient of turn
// should be the same in multiple regression or in a regression
// of price on turn, with the effects of other regressors partialled-off
// from both
// see Baum-Schaffer-Stillman, Stata Journal 2003, 2007
// re ivreg fwl() option
reg price mpg weight turn
est store multr
suest multr fwl
test [multr_mean]turn = [fwl_mean]epst
