Manually calculated imputation is different from what step_knnimpute produces

I conducted a little experiment to understand how step_knnimpute works. During the process, I found that some of my manually calculated imputations are different from those provided by step_knnimpute.

Below is a simple example.

Any guidance to help me to understand this will be much appreciated.
