Strattera is a selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, no doubt about it.

Wellbutrin is... well, I don't think anyone knows what Wellbutrin does anymore. Check out this link

for the latest on Wellbutrin's mechanism of action, basically unknown at this point.

Speaking anecdotally, the norepinephrine reuptake inhibors Strattera and nortriptyline have been of great benefit to me, while I didn't last three days on Wellbutrin. I think it's safe to say at this point that it's anything BUT a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, and hence has little in common with Strattera.
