SPD-SL pedals with extended 4mm axel?

I have a new Specialized Roubaix with Ultegra groupset. I have always ridden a Roubaix with Ultegra GS and normal axel length pedals (no spacers) but I noticed the new ones I received are with the extended 4mm axel (both sides). I realize the benefits of this for people with wider hips or considerable pronation but that does not apply to me (senior rider 5'11, 160 lbs with small/medium frame). Before I decide if I need to send these back in favor of the normal axel length I would like to hear any comments about this wider axel and whether it would still benefit me or more importantly possible disadvantages of using them based on my size. Thanks.
