Albedo & Diffuse texture maps are not the same.

The Albedo map is the base color input that defines the diffuse color or reflectivity of the surface. This is very similar to a diffuse map but is more the pure color of an object, while diffuse is both color as well as shaded with some diffuse lighting.
