But they don't with stock springs. So I'm confused...

As an example, one brand might provide only x compression distance before offering essentially infinite resistance, while another brand with the same static length may still be progressively increasing resistance at x, only stalling at 2x deflection. In that example, one 36mm stop might "bottom out" at 31mm, while another 36mm would give down to 26. Proper spacing would be more critical in the second example, since the extra 5mm could easily mean coil bind, tire clearance problems, etc.
