Default AC21 - with different job "codes" but similar job description

I'm in the process about to use "AC21"
Original employer filed I40 under "electrical engineer" :: SOC Code 17-2071 (approved)
have EAD but never used.
Inside the job description there are entitled strong software background - job duties included programming and software development also. As a requirement a 3year of Software Engineering experience was entitled also.

Situation: Laid off, but received a job offer letter. BUT the position is "software engineer" job code is some 15-XXXX.
Detailed job description/duties will be the same;

Old employer/layer is not revoking anything, willing to help.

Will this stand if they request an EVL or later on the road?
According to my research they not strict about the job codes they more go by the job description and duties.
I'm sure lots of folks are in the same situation, please advice.

SOC Code need not to be included in the EVL. So as long as there is substantial match in the job description you should be fine
