No "advantage", frames are either made for recessed bolts or they are not. If you try to put a recessed bolt brake on a non-recessed frame, the bolts won't be long enough. You can usually do the opposite, however, if you happen to have a set of brakes that you want to use. If you're buying new ones, get the brakes that were made for the frame.
