Interesting question – I’ve wondered this myself whenever I’ve needed to not push all the shank in, which is usually.
For what it may be worth, Trend, my supplier of bits, has this to say...

Always insert as much of the Shank as possible into the collet, and at least three quarters of the shank length as a minimum, to decrease the chances of deflection of cutter when under load.

Ummm, I often don’t get them much in.
