One notable difference is that a git user does not see these unless they
look for them. You can have hundreds of such branches without a typical
user even knowing about them. In contrast, many normal hg commands show you
these additional heads, often in a way that doesn't scale well.

Another difference is that hg bookmarks are not namespaced. Sean says there
has been some work in this direction, but it sounds like it's not ready for
use yet and will be a while before it makes it into the standard release
(if ever).
