The lunar rate in the mount is the average rate.  The moon has some variability in it's rate that can be noticeable vis-a-vis the average rate.  Luna also varies a bit in declination and has a drift component from that in addition to the atmospheric refraction.
Ray's *Horizons* program, which is a part of APCC, can give you very tight lunar tracking.
