Question Setback

Embedded this question in another long post, which might have been a bad idea:

I measured my Jones Mountain (Directional) Twin (which has setback by default) and I realized that with my planned 21 inch stance, I'll have 21 inches from nose to center of front binding, and 21 inches from tail to center of rear binding. This works out to a "twin" (i.e. perfectly centered on the board) stance if I set the front binding on the reference hole, which makes my rear binding end up forward of that reference hole (since my stance is smaller than the reference stance of 23.xx"). Any potential issues with this? Should I be setting the rear binding on the reference hole? I realize it's only a 2" difference, but after riding a setback board last night I thought I should at least investigate.
