Default Bulk aging on lees

I just got done the clearing and stabilizing steps for my WE cab. merlot and just racked it to a carboy for bulk aging. I just looked at it today and notices that some lees have settled. Maybe because I picked some up in the racking, or maybe it is just clearing some more....

Is there any harm in leaving it there for the 3 months that I planned between rackings.....I did add 1/4 tsp of k-meta before transfering....
