Coop "fill-your-own" fruit/vege bags....how full?

I have been wondering this for some time, so since it's Friday, I thought I would finally ask....

How full is too full when it comes to those coop "fill-your-own" fruit/vege bags?
My daughter loves pears and we love avocado and mangoes, so when these specials are running I end up playing some sort of bizarre tetris game trying to get the bag as packed as possible. 99% of the time I close up the bag before presenting it at checkout...but is this really necessary?
I noticed in their flyer they had the end of a pineapple poking out the top...I mean how are you supposed to close the bag with an entire pineapple inside?

One time I rebelled and left the bag open with a couple of pears peeking out and the checkout operator didn't say anything. So is it a case of full it up until they start falling out or does the bag need to close?
