ADF5002 output impedance

The data sheet for the ADF5002 shows an output structure with two 100 ohm internal pull ups.

I assume that there are open collectors or open drains connected to these.

The general description then states that the ADF5002 has 100 ohm differential outputs.

With the output frequency low, such as Fin = 4 GHz, wouldn't 200 ohms differential be more appropriate to maximize Po?

This question ignores effect of the 1 pF DC blocking caps. Thank you.
