Not surprising, nothing is produced that makes the *result* differ, the
fact that an 'assert' or an 'assume' was seen is lost and you get an
instance of 'expression'. You are not showing the grammar for "fo=bar"
so impossible to tell you exactly what is going on.
You need something in the created object that keeps the information. You
can use a boolean flag, assign the keyword, or use two different classes
(this is what typically used).
// using boolean flag
expression: isAssert ?= 'assert' 'at' ... ;
// assigning the keyword
expression : type = ASSERT AT ... | type = ASSUME ... ;
// using classes
expression: AssertExpression | AssumeExpression ;
AssertExpression : 'assert' '@' ... ;
AssumeExpression : 'assign' ... ;
Another thing to possibly change is using the Xtext keyword support as
using terminals for keywords is usually not a very good idea.
expression: 'assert' '@' fo = bar | 'assume' ex= .... ;
expression: ASSERT AT ...
Doing so, they will be recognized as keywords.

The problem is in your grammar.
Hope that helps.
