As you pointed out, a lot of the difference is in the stimulus to the arms/forearms. Ground L-sits are also harder because you have to be super-strict to stay above the immovable plane below your legs, whereas on rings or parallettes you can fudge this a bit. Ring L-sits differ in that they force you to use many more stabilizer muscles in your shoulders to overcome the frictionless plane. That being the case, I would assume the motion inherent in the adjustments would perhaps increase the stimulus to the core also, as any movement in the extremities will be transferred through the area.
