Linker-Script Alignment

Hello

Has anyone ever noticed that the alignment of certain sections in the linker scripts provided by ST (and Cube) differ between 4 and 8-byte a lot?

E.g.
The original script for the F407 defines .isr_vector, .text, .data and so on as 4-byte aligned, whereas the script for the L476 defines them all as 8-byte aligned.

Is there any specific reason for this?
I've always thought 4-byte alignment is sufficient in any case?
