The jar in the command line might only be the jar to submit the map-reduce job, rather than the jar contains the Mapper and Reducer which will be transferred to different node.
What the hadoop jar your-jar really did, is setting the classpath and other related environment, and run the main method in your-jar. You might have a different map-reduce-jar in the classpath which contains the real mapper and reducer used to do the job.
