I assume you mean the back of the blade; the side without the bevel.

I have a couple of Veritas and LN planes, and I always do a complete back flattening anyway. Most of the time it is quick as the quality of both manufacturers is good, but I have had ones that needed some work. I think it’s worth checking. I take the whole back through 1000 and 4000 grit (using Charlesworth’s two motions, across the stone and in and out, if you know what I mean), and use the ruler trick for the 8000grit. After initial flattening I just use the ruler trick and the 8000grit stone. Seems to work pretty well for me.
