Prebuilt CircleCI Images Bad Practice?

Maybe I’m crazy, and I hope I am. But, I was watching this video about using prebuilt images from CircleCI.

But one of the main reasons we use Docker is that the SAME environment that I develop in, is what is tested, is what id deployed.

What is the benefit of using these CircleCI images, and do they invalidate your tests by changing the environment?
