Maybe some of the flavour is in the molasses and that dries quicker in an Egyptian bowl or goes down the stem. Leaving a stronger tobacco taste.

It could be psychosomatic.

welcome to the beauty of an egyptian. this is why I prefer my nak and black moassel in an egyptian rather than a phunnel

EDIT: for a direct answer for you, yes, you get me tobacco notes in an egyptian because the molasses isnt able to just sit there and keep the tobacco wet. the molasses, in the case of nak, is being evaporated, enabling you to get a bigger tobacco taste

If you're wanting to try Nak in an egyptian bowl, I made a video showing/telling how to pack it properly! Enjoy!
