I bought new valves and when I received them the exhaust valve stems where longer then the ones I pulled out. Is this an iassue?

(1990 Volkswagen Jetta)
When I ordered the valves the exhaust stems where longer then the stoke ones. Is this wrong or is this some kind of after market thing. I don't want to start if they will mess up my car. If the exhaust stems are bigger what does it mean?

What is the overall length of your new valves and what is the overall length of your old valves?

Old ones 3 and quarter new ones about 4 inches. Its not much but enough to worry if you don't know these things. Wish I could send a pic, I don't know specifics on them. Its exactly the same size front where the keepers sit. Well same size as a keep I guess is say. Lol it says in the book the old ones where 3.8. Can't find what these new ones are. But like I said its the height of about the keeper area.
