Ubox vs LilFOCer Footpad connections

Hi all! Was considering using the UBOX 100v for my upcoming build and saw a difference in a couple build videos. Pulldown resistors are used in surfdado’s video but in Leon Chang’s he doesn’t mention them.
So are they needed and are they needed on a LilFOCer (I am guessing no from reading specs/builds but thought I should ask). Also does anyone’s prebuilt connector kits already have them? Ava Spark maybe as they build on Ubox it seems?
