Why is zero padding used for some WUs and not for others? Is there any advantage or just no possibility to calculate the zero padded WUs?

Found the solution having a closer look at the GWNUM library. Reason is, that for larger FFTs (I think it 50k or higher) another accuracy is needed, so the calculation is using the zero padded methods.
