This is based on general understanding, and is open to correction.
Butting is done to reduce weight. Unbutted tubes tend to be the same thickness as the thickest part of the butted tubes.
Therefore, if I understand properly, your bike will be fine, unless you think it is too heavy. If you need something lighter, then look for a frame with butted tubes.
