Advantage of zero-centering values when using linear coding

Hello,

what is the advantage of zero-centering the values when using linear coding for an attribute? Is it because of the effect coding, so the levels also sum up to zero? Is there any literature I can cite to back up this approach?

Thank you for your help!
