I don't know what it might mean, but probably those were what the bike shop had in stock when they assembled the bike. I'd be skeptical of changing up my "Q" just for random reasons like that. So I'd be asking them to exchange them for pedals with normal length axles. Especially if you cycle a fair amount of miles every week.

But certainly I'd also be interested to hear what others think about it.

Your pedals are from the PD-R8000 or PD-6800 series? Pedals being a separate purchase from bikes normally, were these a special deal or something?
