Stairwell/Newel post

Just seeking thoughts/opinions on the placement of this newel post. I've rarely if ever seen it with space between the post and first stair, even if it means that first margin is less than the rest. Builder wasn't entirely sure (is going to get with the subs and find out) but thought it was perhaps to keep the margins the same, and to avoid cutting into the oak tread. know there are alot of factors that go into building a railing, so perhaps there's a technical reason why only this would work or was just the best option.

Was interested in getting other thoughts/opinions and maybe some pros could weigh in...

Thanks for the help!
