In general, official and official-git packages have different purposes.

btrfs-progs in official repos (testing/extra) should provides a
released version.
The btrfs-progs-git package is a _source_ package used to build a
package with the _last_ git version (at the build time).
At each release, the git package should ship the same content that the
released one.
