Alma Linux Version RHEL Compatibility

Hi newbie question here but are Alma Linux and RHEL release 1:1?

Does a program built in RHEL run on AlmaLinux? Yes
Does a program built in AlmaLinux run on RHEL? Yes
Both have same set of utilities and libraries (interfaces).

Are strings in files like /etc/os-release identical? No.
Iā€™d say that programs should not care about such trivia, but then I remembered that my Ansible playbooks might ā€“ author of the program has to pay attention how those strings are tested (if they have to be looked at to begin with).
