The reason for bolting is to make later replacement easier, by avoiding the effort of grinding off the old welds and welding again. To change from welded to bolted (using the Dexter side-mount bracket) would mean grinding off the just-done welds, welding on the bracket, and bolting the axle in place.

Since I don't see an advantage to expending that effort now rather than maybe later - except that the fabricator might absorb the cost - as long as the axle is properly mounted I would just leave it.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
