--keep-foreign-metadata and EAC. Necessary at all?

I understand what --keep-foreign-metadata does but i wonder if it is necessary at all with WAVE files EAC produces. In my tests restored files previously encoded <without> the --keep-foreign-metadata option have the same checksum as the original EAC-created WAVE file. Is this because my test-CDs just don't contain any foreign metadata or is this switch useless in combination with EAC, because EAC doesn't read any "foreign" metadata at all?

The only time I can think of that it might be good is when recording direct to FLAC in a DAW to keep track of the time positions of the recordings- Regards.
