130WB Rear Doors Limited to 180 Degrees?

"The rear hinged 50/50 cargo doors swing open 180 degrees on the 130-inch wheelbase model. On the 148-inch wheelbase model (shown), the cargo doors open 270 degrees and are held open by magnets.

What's up with this? Seems like an unnecessary limitation, maybe something to do with the magnet hold-open interfering with the passenger side slider?

I recall trying to load something in my friend's E-150, but there wasn't enough width with the rear doors at 180 degrees. Fortunately, there is a manual release that allowed the doors to swing all the way open for loading. Hope there is something similar on the Transit. A minor issue, to be sure.
