There is no difference. :)

PL means proof-listen, so "PL-OK" just means something like, "proof listened; OK!" whereas "OK" is just the OK part. ;)

Out of curiosity, was there a specific post/project/context where you saw them used that had you confused?

I know that I often use ok just as a normal part of my communication. So for example, my PL notes might look something like....
4:45 There is a bit of a thud behind your voice here that's a bit distracting. This is ok for now, and you don't need to worry about it, but you might want to watch for things like that in future recordings, make sure not to bump the table or the mic cord or whatever.
At the end, you forgot to say "End of section 21."
In this case (I just made all that up, if you're curious), the section would not be PL ok, since there's an important piece missing at the end. But the thud I'd heard would be fine.

I'm not sure if a usage like that could have caused some confusion. But I could see the potential for it.
