[FieldTrip] Coordinate System (Align electrode positions) Brainstrom VS fieldtrip

I was checking the one of the Fieldtrip's pages to perform an have change
the coordinate system of my electrodes position

The page:

For doing an alignment, the fiducials positions should be given, I did not
have them first, so I use the brainstorm toolbox to get them from the
patient MRI.

In brainstrom I found this equation for transforming from voxel to mm.
(given the voxel size)

Position_mm = Position_voxel .* Voxel_size.

While in fieldtrip I found another statement which gives (given the
transformation matrix) a different answer:

warp_apply(vox2head, vox_Nas, 'homogenous');

For example using brainstorm equation I got:

NAS = [117.1920  215.8287  118.9998]

And using the fieldtrip function, I got:

NAS = [14.3973   49.3926   49.6322]

What is the difference between the two?

Thank you
