Seat Post Bottomed Out

Just wrapping up a build on a Domane frame. Put in the seat post and it bottomed out. Turns out it is at exactly the right height. Any reason to trim the seat post?

I may have the opportunity to move my 105 triple groupset from my Trek 2.1 to a Giant Defy Advanced carbon frame. What challenges might I encounter? BB?
