IRC E3805.3.1 also only has the 1/4" minimum requirement, and no maximum. I understand the 1" maximum is just considered good trade practice, and I usually do not see more than that amount of NM sheathing projecting into a box or cabinet.
I don't see it as a huge issue, but it may become a consideration in a packed "birds nest" panel since it will take up more space.
Just my opinion and 2-nickels ... ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)

I am absolutely amazed sometimes by how much thought goes into doing things wrong
