Since the doors sit behind the frame, the only issue you will have is the visual of the garage door sitting in a reduced opening. If this if a flush door, the visual is non existant. If the door has raised panels, they might look squeezed against the sidewalls.
The doors function should not be impacted.

I doubt this will be a problem for the door installers. You will just have a narrowere opening. As long as the opening is square and plumb otherwise it should be OK.
