Default bwa sampe max insert size

Dear BWA users,

Checking through the sam file produced from the following commands:

bwa sampe -a 2792 ref.fa read1.sai read2.sai read1.fq read2.fq >

I have found a high percentage of pairings with insert size much greater that the 2792bp specified with the -a option (examples belwo). Have anyone seen this and do you have an explanation? Thank you
