In Rogue One, the infiltration squad of the same name used the stolen Zeta-class cargo shuttle, identified as SW-0608, to land on the planet Scarif. While they approached the Shield Gate station, the wing configuration of the ship was changed in landing mode.
Once the ship passed through the station, the wings were again reset in flight mode.
Why did they do that? Most likely it's an Imperial procedure, because other ships could be seen doing the very same. But as it has nothing to do with landing, and the Shield Gate is obviously not within the planet's atmosphere, there should be no technical reason to change the configuration.
The movie does not give any hint, so I'm looking at you guys who've read the novelization...
