Hub confusion on QR standard with Rockhopper 26 (and 27.5 for that matter)

Good Evening,

So I'm looking to buy a 2020 Specialized Riprock 26, and had a question I'll leave to someone more knowledgeable. (I tried emailing Specialized with no response, and have gotten conflicting info talking to local mechanics on the phone.

On their spec sheet they list the rear dropouts and hubs as follows:

Rear Hub
Formula 6-Bolt freehub, disc, 135x9mm spacing, quick-release, 32H

A1 premium butted alloy, zero-stack head tube, internal cable routing, 135x9mm forged dropouts, chainstay-mounted disc brake, replaceable alloy derailleur hanger, stealth rack mounts, dropper post compatible

Same thing with the 27.5 model.

Part of why I zeroed in on this bike is because I already have a 26" wheelset that is set up for QR. However, my wheelset rear hub spacing is 10mm x 135mm (as are most wheels and hubs that I'm able to find).

So my question is whether this is a negligible difference or some sort of proprietary hub they are using that is going to give me headaches and compatibility issues. And if it is the latter is there anywhere you know of that sells compatible wheelsets/hubs. Thanks in advance everybody.

*Rockhopper. Sorry I have riprock in my head because of the ridiculous 110mm spacing they use on the fork of my youngest daughter's riprock 20.
