I'm not sure either.

There're three prop circles that leave the mid-span of the wings and the tips of the tail exposed to free air. The fuselage and engine nacelles should have laminar flow, but any attached turbulence (interference drag at the root of the tail in crosswinds?) is actively managed by the propulsion system.

Maybe there is no advantage.
