Beginners question QG4/QG8

I am new to HCS08QG8 so the question may be dumb. Some years ago I played around already with 68332 and BD32 (DOS-Debugger), now I want to use the mentioned device and Code Warrior 5.0.
I have started with the DEMO9S08QG8 and wrote some Code. Since our distributor had the QG4 on stock and the lower memory will be enough for my application I have ordered the QG4. Since I am a little curious I didn't change the device in CW5.0 and awaited an error because the flash of the QG4 starts at $F000 instead of $E000 of the QG8. But there seems to be no problem. To verify that I've written code with two ascii test strings with the org command to $EA00 and another to $F000. Both are there in the memory window!
Setting the device to QG4 in CW5.0 results for sure in "00" from $E000 to $EFFF.
Has somebody got an idea why this happens?
Best Regards
