Default SSD pan head screws - what are they for?

Hi all,
I was going through manual of corsair 100R case. It shows 2 different types of screws for SSDs. See the screenshot.
ssd/odd screws and ssd pan head screws.
The pan head screws are only 4 in number, so I wonder what they are for and where do they get fitted actually?
Can anyone clarify? Are they for M2 ssd by any chance?

Default Pan Head Head Screws: Attach 2.5" SSD to 3.5" HDD Slideout rack

I used the 4 pan head screws to attach my Samsung 860 EVO 2.5" SSD into the top slide out rack of the Corsair 460X RGB case HDD cage. I screwed them into the bottom of the slideout rack and into the SSD screw holes. Note that probably 4 of the 16 SSD screws would probably have worked as I think the difference is in the shape of the screw head (flat vs rounded).

Default Sorry ... reviewed the pics again

Sorry … I now see that the screws have different threads. I had no trouble using the pan head screws in the HDD cage slideout rack with the larger threads. I would assume that "stripping" would have occurred with tighter threads in both the rack and the SSD and I did not experience that.
