STP VLAN root primary|secondary 2nd post

I just find out today from my lead that we are not really using the command above as part of our VLAN creation steps instead we statically set VLAN priority to 8192 for the root bridge and 16384 for the secondary root bridge.
We just try to use the Cisco macro command root primary and root secondary because our boss insisted on using it. Now we know that this command give’s/set 24576 and 28372 priority value to the root and the secondary root bridge respectively.
I don’t really see any problem in using the macro command or setting the priority value by your self as long as your being consistent and not mix the two command in a single setup.
