I'm glad you mentioned this! I thought I was crazy watching it on video. It seemed different to me!
Some lunatic* did a breakdown of the differences/additions to the end credits music of The Force Awakens in that movie's Blu-ray review thread back when the disc came out:

I went to the theater and saw TFA once more since it was leaving theaters and I recorded the end credit music. Comparing that recording to the soundtrack and the Blu-ray, I've conclusively answered the questions about the end credits music (conclusive to me anyway) and long story short, the Blu-ray absolutely alters the end credit music.

More in-depth and more difficult to clearly explain, the soundtrack's 'Jedi Steps And Finale' is close to the theatrical end credits music but it cuts out about 2:15 worth of music (starting about about 6:20 on the soundtrack) before returning to the music as it is heard in the theatrical version. The Blu-ray end credits have a longer alternate (from the theatrical music) version of 'Rey's Theme' and it adds music (similar to the track 'Scherzo For X-Wings') and the rest of the music from the theatrical cut end credits is present on the Blu-ray (including the 2:15 worth of music that wasn't present on the soundtrack).

The Blu-ray's version of 'Rey's Theme' runs about 1:10 longer than it does in the theatrical credits and the 'Scherzo' music runs about 1:41. That additional 2:51 accounts for the Blu-ray running 2:18:06 rather than the rounded-up 2 hour and 16 minute run time of the theatrical cut.

EDIT: The closest you can get to the theatrical cut's end credits music would be to take the soundtrack track 'Jedi Steps And Finale' until about 4:12 and match it to the music on the Blu-ray at about 2:11:56.

Earlier in this very thread :)

(But yes, I agree, search is better at turning up whole threads with title matches than articles discussed within differently named threads.)

The only request I have of Disney at the moment is that they put the 1973 Miracle on 34th street on the platform uncut
