Depends on the mechanism that supports the steps. If it’s a pivoting arm system then putting weight on it may be a problem but if it’s a sliding system with ball bearings it makes no difference how far out the steps go before you step on them. In fact it’s better with them not as far out because the leverage is not as much
This post is my opinion, worth what you paid for it.
