As I understand it, the studded shoulders originated in the old heresy armor, but remained popular trough the centuries in a more symbolic manner.

Often times a marine's armor will be passed down or parted out, especially if he had something of a reputation. So these days it's not uncommon to see studded shoulders on even the newer Mk7 and Mk8 armors, either as a piece of an ancient suit that was passed down, or simply as a symbol of someone's status as a veteran.

In other words, studded shoulder pads go on whomever you want ;-)
Left side only, though.
