The extra stitch is so that both sides will end with a knit stitch. Essentially with seed stitch you always knit the purls and purl the knits so if you do that it doesn't matter how many stitches you have really. With the moss st you do two rows the same and then switch the stitches. As long as you keep that set up the number doesn't really matter.
