Here are both types. Yes, indeed, the center embossing on the 1925 design runs short of the edge.

I checked the drawings ( I was using) in the August 2001 Model Railroader drawn by Harold W. Russell where the center rib stamping looks to be to the roof edge, maybe an inch off; however, in the 1922 Car Builders as Dave Parker wrote the center rib stamping is a few inches short of the roof edge.
