As far as I know, that should be okay, but remember that the "4" in the type definition is the number of significant digits (not just the number of digits to the left of the decimal), so rounding may occur with a value like 12.025, which would require 5 significant digits to avoid any rounding. But in this specific circumstance, I'd be more suspicious of the application code for now, until proven otherwise.

For what its worth, 0.025 comes back as 0.025 in SQL Server and MySQL:
