Default Why are some skates plates mounted 2-3 mm to outside?

I don't have an opinion one way or the other, but I was just wondering if anyone knows the reasoning behind this?

In my directions from Roll-line says center plate, then add 3 mm toward outside of sole. So this image below seems to be translated from Italian ("using a hammer" LOL) and says for a "measurement of 38". I guess that means 38 degrees?

So does anyone know what the " 3 mm toward outside of sole" does?. I know some people ignore this all together and just put the wheels right under the boot (midline). I also understand the setup above is more popular in artistic skating, right?

I am kind of asking because I have supination (rolling outward motion of the foot) and was wondering if I am better off leaving the 3mm extra out? I figure I don't need help in that direction, but maybe there is more to this.
