      Description

      We should revisit the exclude list from puppet facts diff command(https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppet/blob/6.x/lib/puppet/face/facts.rb#L5-L26) and make sure that only volatile facts are excluded.
      We can also check and update the test that puppet-agent is running: https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppet-agent/blob/6.x/acceptance/tests/ensure_facter_3_and_facter_4_output_matches.rb
