If they don't, effective radius will be bigger, which means brake torque forward is increased and so brake balance is affected. I think it is generally difficult to create a fixed piston caliper for the stock rotors because of pad choice.
As far as I know the caliper being developed by TECH and his team isn't an existing caliper with adaptations to fit, but rather a custom solution from a reputable manufacturer specifically engineered for our cars. I may be wrong, but this is what I remember reading.
