G30Gen4 / G30S grip size

Does anyone know the difference in grip size between the G30 Gen4 with no added blackstrap, and the G30S? I keep getting conflicting information from multiple local gun stores.

Is the Gen4 grip with no added blackstrap any smaller than the regular Gen3 grip size?

The G30S comes with the SF frame, which is 2mm shorter front-to-back, than the standard G30 frame.

The G30 Gen 4, naked, comes with what Glock claims to be an SF-sized frame, and +2mm and +4mm backstraps. Glock probably knows better than I, but the Gen 4 30 frame feels just a hair smaller than the SF frames.

But for all practical purposes, G30S has the SF frame which is the same as the naked Gen 4 frame.
