I always see people modifying their frames for beavertails why not modify the beavertail, is there a reason for that?

Yes------
A square peg will not go into a round hole without screwin up something
Think about the pivot point ---The BT must rotate around the frame at that point- A grip safety just travels between the two points at that point on the frame -

I'm probably wrong but it looks like 99% of the time, it is purely cosmetic. The BT sweeps up leaving the back of the un-modified, standard GI frame sticking out where it used to match the profile of the down swept, standard GI grip safety/hammer guard.

You're right--You're wrong

Unless you have huge hands, if your grip is correct you shouldn't be being "bit"

For the most part, it is cosmetic.
For competition shooters who grab the gun and start shooting, it isn't.
They do not use the luxury of taking their time to make sure everything is "just so" when shooting. Their grip on the gun is muscle memory. The extended grip safety helps to place the web of the hand correctly.

For those who grab the grip "high" have figured that the felt recoil is reduced, but that offers a small piece of the web of the hand to the hammer or slide.
