That's not the only thing, they have to respect the ratings of that circuit (V and A).

it's not that that matters
but if they aren't close to exact one light is going to be brighter than the other.

It's not? You're wrong, if you exceed the ratings you will blow something.
Example:
Most CMOS have a 10mA rating... if you wire 2 LEDs you'll blow up the IC.
What really matters here is the circuit with all its ICs and stuff, not really if the leds are gonna light up the same way.
