Question Miseq custom primer design, primer linker

Miseq custom primer design, primer linker

Many papers have used a 2bp primer linker in 5 end of the amplicon primers. As, I understand this is to prevent taxon specific PCR bias due to matches to the overhanger and/ or barcodes. I am wondering why 16S protocol did not add a linker.
Thanks,
