I'd heard something about that and figured that was the reason, I just wasn't sure how to describe it! Thanks!

This would be due to EGF using a 22 degree flap setting on landing (vs. the normal 45 deg) when able. It is my understanding that this is for fuel savings, due to the lower N1 setting caused by reduced drag.
