Ummmm,  I don't think anybody knows what a buff is.
 Is that the correct terminology?

I can't speak for shadow 2 owners but I don't use shock buffers in anything. I use the correct recoil spring for the loads I'm shooting have never had a concern.

Why would someone take it out?

For fear that it will disintegrate and prevent the gun from operating properly. I have shot my shadow 2 in USPSA with the buffer since day one without any adverse effects. It’s the same thing as short stroking a rifle.

It’s a personal preference. Some like it, some don’t.

I use the buffer on my TSO also without any problems running either minor or major power factor loads.

It's interesting that Shadow 2 and other pistols from CZ are coming with factory buffs installed, while others do not. CGW does not recommend them. Here's a thread I started a while back regarding competition and buffs. hth.
