roof ridge vent

Is the ridge vent supposed to end about a shingle lenth from each end of the ridge? Got a new roof recently, and this is the way they did it. On two different sections of the roof) I don't see any other ridge vents that look like this.. Any suggestions? It is Certainteed.

I've done it both ways. Usually to the preference of the customer.
