Necessity of overprivisioning a flash drive?

USB flash drives typically don't overprovision or even wear-level.

To be specific, it is a Sandisk CZ880. The spec sheet on WD does not specified which controller it employed.

Assumed it is a Marvell, is it still necessnary to overprovisioning 10% of it?
