Baking Recipes that say 1 cup flour plus 1 or 2 tsps. or Tbsps.

I do a lot of baking and prefer to use a scale for measuring my cake ingredients. However, I've seen a lot of recipes that call for a cup of flour plus 1 or 2 teaspoons or tablespoons. What does that small amount bring to the recipe and how detrimental would it be to leave it out? I know that when measuring for cakes, etc, its important to be accurate but does it really make that much of a difference to the outcome?
