Detecting and masking repeats with EDTA: Low threshold vs complete masking

0

So I ran EDTA on my genome and got 39% of repeats, then this program also generated a masked copy ready to use in Maker, but only masking repeats > 1kb, resulting in only 20% of the total genome masked. Why would the EDTA perform a low threshold masking? Does it have any advantage over a complete masking?
