Since you are pulling the kmer information from randomly-sheared metagenomic reads, and using the variable region as a seed, it should be safe. However, there is a possibility of running into a tandem repeat region during extension when you give it a very high extension limit, so I recommend also adding the flag "ibb=f". It probably won't make any difference though.
