Swiss Passport through birth (parents) vs through naturalization

I have been wondering whether there are any difference in having a passport through birth (both parents Swiss, birth in Switzerland) and through naturalization?

Of course, in the U.S. someone couldn't become president if they hadn't obtained citizenship at birth by being born inside the U.S.

There are no differences here, are there?

Theoretically, all Swiss citizens are equal ( especially 5 years after having acquired it ) irrespective of the way citizenship was acquired.

It gives a window for the authorities to strip one of the CH citizenship, as in here:

I know of many cases that had the holder lose his CH ID and passport for various discrepancies at the 5th year, appealed to the Federal Administrative Court, lose, and regain it eventually with the support of the Gemeinde and Canton.
