Generally, the decision about using ?: is not about whether it's necessary, but that capturing whatever you're grouping isn't necessary. The ?: modifier makes parentheses not capture, which is somewhat more efficient and might make the task of counting left parentheses less onerous.

By the way, it's not a lookaround feature.
