    I would say that they center the axle to make putting the wheel back on easier.
    If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough...

    Well,ACTUALLY, what they DO is keep the QR away from the ends of the axel so there is clearance for the wheel to go cleanly into the dropouts.Easy enough to observe the process.
