Rebuilding indexes and fragmentation. Why do I see different fragmentation levels with these scripts?

Why does the first script show me indexes over 1000 page count that have hardly any fragmentation but when I run the 2nd script it shows me a list of indexes that are heavily fragmented that also have over 1000 pages.

What is the different between these two scripts?

At first glance, your filters are different.  In the first, you filter sys.indexes by [type] IN (1,2,3,4), which would exclude HEAP (0) for example.  Similarly, in the second query, you filter the average fragmentation percent to those greater than 20 but do not filter the same in the first query.

In other words, look at the filters and make sure they are consistent with what you want to see.

Bingo.  Not sure why I was overlooking the HEAP filter.
