If you got them from a reputable seller they are the revised stem version and will not harm your caps. There are sellers that still sell the old switch, but if you get it from novelkeys or somewhere like that you should be good.

Correct, have now bought all my latest BOX switches from Novelkeys and every single one doesn't GAPE any single Key-cap, whether it's made by GMK or Signature Plastics.

There's a lot of choice compared to a couple of years ago. Truly a very fine time to be a Keyboard Lover with so many switches available.
