you're right it isn't the same. I've installed them both

from  rpm -qi libc

Description :
Older Linux systems (including all Red Hat Linux releases between 2.0
and 4.2, inclusive) were based on libc version 5. The libc package
includes the libc5 libraries and other libraries based on libc5.  With
these libraries installed, old applications which need them will be able
to run on your glibc (libc version 6) based system.

The libc package should be installed so that you can run older applications
which need libc version 5.
