2014 R/T came with wheel spacers from the factory?

A friend and a damaged wheel at delivery on his new '14 WD RT.. which the dealer replaced under warranty. When the dealer pulled the wheel, he discovered that there was a spacer behind it, and in fact all four wheels had spacers.

Did/do WDs/WK2s leave JNAP with factory wheel spacers? That seems very strange to me.

Where exactly does this spacer go? Is it attached to the socks or is it behind the wheel?

Re: 2014 R/T came with wheel spacers from the factory?

could the spacer be used to give the R/T a slightly wider stance for better road stability?

R/T is lowered for better center of gravity, could they had made it wider to help with handling too?
