New iMac extra RAM: instead of standard RAM or in addition?

Thanks to advice on here I recently ordered a new iMac 27in with i9 processor and 2TB SSD but only the basic 8GB of RAM, separately buying 32GB of Crucial RAM (2x 16GB) to install myself. Should I install this in the two vacant slots, so making a total of 40GB, or is it better to remove the original two 4GB modules and put the two 16GB ones in the newly vacated slots? Or, putting it another way, is it better to have as much RAM as possible or only one size of RAM module in my Mac? I'll be using it for LightRoom.
