No difference.  I get the default behavior in both cases, and both log
files mention the renumbering:

$ texexec 3.tex > somewhere
$ mv 3.log 3-nocheck.log
[comment out the nocheck line]
$ texexec 3.tex > somewhereelse
$ grep renumber 3{,-nocheck}.log
3.log:floatblocks     : 1 renumbered / figure 1 => 2
3.log:floatblocks     : 2 renumbered / figure 2 => 1
3-nocheck.log:floatblocks     : 1 renumbered / figure 1 => 2
3-nocheck.log:floatblocks     : 2 renumbered / figure 2 => 1

Maybe this context installation is too old for nocheck.  On the other
hand, it should complain then?
