I prefer set this values because I force the server to accept only
secure protocol. Windows protocols earlier than LANMAN2 could be
easily eavesdropped from the network. LANMAN2 and higher are stronger.
I remember from L0pht Crack that attacked this.
The default 'min protocol' could allows some kind of attack in the network.

The links I sent from Microsoft helps improve client security
improving connection security. This are really for security paranoid

I didn't know these values were the default. Maybe I used this long
time ago when it weren't.
