```Mathenatica distinguishes between == (Equal) and === (SameQ). You can see

In[1]:=
?==
lhs == rhs returns True if lhs and rhs are identical.

In[2]:=
?===
lhs === rhs yields True if the expression lhs is identical\

to rhs, and yields False otherwise.

In the case {a,b}=={b,a} Mathematica does not know if the expressions are
indenitical or not becaue it does not know the values of a and b. So it
retuns the input uneveluated. In th esecond case it also does not know the
values of a and b but as it has to return True or False it chooses the
latter.
