This is an optical illusion. Removing default settings simplifies your
configuration for a human reader, but has no performance impact.

Postfix defaults change from time to time, and unless you have a
particular reason to explicity chose the current default value, it is
best to let future Postfix releases run with the defaults for the release
in question.
