The sedans have a wide recessed band running the length of the taillight 
assembly, which the Avants don't and when you put the Avant taillights in a 
sedan (or vice versa), they don't 'sit right' in the recess, and they're 
different in length from the sedan items.
Also, Avants have their release button/lock assembly below the light bar, 
which would be a problem when you fit Avant parts to a later sedan (or V8 
parts to an early sedan, for that matter).
