Does it really matter seeing they are on the bottom and covered up with paint etc...? I have lots of 2x4, 2x6 and would rather keep my mahogany for visible repairs. I was going to lightly glue them in with paint or something similar. The current planks are mahogany.

Go with the same wood, because both plank and bung will behave the same way to their environment. Dissimilar woods will shrink and swell at different rates and paint adhesion may not be the same.

I'd also be a bit concerned about pine bungs rotting...
