Difference Between RBAC And Mandatory Access Control

Following the security+ movies I can't see the difference between role based access control and mandatory access control. In role based you need to have a role to access an object. The object specifies which roles are granted access. In mandatory you need a tag to have acces to an object. The object specifies which tags are allowed. Is the difference purely semantic? The link below has a good discussion of the differences. https://security.stackexchange.com/questions/63518/mac-vs-dac-vs-rbac
