Valve retainers diff?

Noticed the retainers on intakes are diff from intakes? One set has a perfectly flat top (intakes), while exhausts have a beveled edge. Is this correct and why?

Not all relevant to your question but:
inlet retainers fit inside a bucket, exhausts do not (not related to the bevel).
stem diameters are different - 5.5 inlet, 5 exhaust.
make sure cotters and retainers don't get mixed up as they are different.
when disassembling, put each set of valve train components (valve, spring, spring seat, retainer, cotters etc) in a seperate bag with a piece of paper "left exhaust", "right inlet" etc.
