MDM is generally considered in the context of database systems, and intranets within enterprise networks, but is certainly about managing models just as ontologies are. At this level the differences are mostly about the differences between database system technologies and semantic system technologies. These differences are well known.
On another level ontologies, or should I say the greater ontology community, focuses more on the scope of use. MDM systems are still localized, and thus the models are still vetted within the context of an enterprise and its use cases. The focus/goals of the semantic community is to develop models that will be vetted on the broadest scale possible, starting perhaps in localized communities but branching outward when and where possible. So the goals are similar, and the kinds of people working the problems have a similar mindset and approach, but the tools and languages are different, and the focus (sometimes because of those tools and languages) is different.
Logic is one way to build models but it is only one way so I do not think that bringing it into the discussion is on point.
