'Proper' phase 1 wings are different - they're externally identical but don't clear the back of the phase 2 headlights properly and have sockets mounted in the fronts to receive the ends of the cosmetic strip that goes under the lights, which I think is mounted differently on the phase 2 - however, phase 2 wings are universal, and wouldn't create a problem when mounted on a phase 1 car, which is probably why some sellers are selling them as suitable for 1994-2000 models.
I wouldn't be surprised if many late (97-98) phase 1s were mounted with the phase 2 wings from the factory - that's certainly the case with the frame the headlights mount on, which is why some phase 1 owners have more trouble than others switching to phase 2 headlights - I was unlucky in this case and had to modify the lights themselves to make them fit.
