Parasount HCA2200II

Hello all,
I was looking at this schematic and was wondering why the negative feedback resistor (R125) is 47K and not 100K? Could it be a mistake on the schematic or am I missing something.

The input resistor (R121) to ground is 100K.

I don't own this amp but I am trying to understand the design.

In well-balanced BJT inputs it is good habit to make the DC resistance equal on both sides to cancel base current errors.

This is a JFET input. No base current. (Gate current is negligible.) Moreover it is complementary giving some cancellation of opposing (negligible) gate currents. Moreover there is a DC Servo to force the output to zero despite input errors.
