Some machines have aluminium extrusion beds and a lot of people clamp directly to that surface especially if they are doing work that doesn't involve through cuts. Some others have built in programs to level the spoilboard either by screw adjustment or planing.

Machine rigidity varies, router mounting alignment varies, etc. Poor rigidity/poor router alignment can yield poor surface planing (and poorer quality performance overall).
