There's no advantage in having the disks - my opinion.
You can always download again.
The downloads are always available at the link below. The only advantage in getting the boxed version with disks is during promotions such as Black Friday and Holiday sales. Sometimes the prices fall below the Adobe upgrade price although this is more likely for other stand-alone products such as Photoshop Elements when purchased from Amazon, Costco etc. Many newer PC’s no longer have disc drives so the download is usually best. It is possible to download and then validate with a serial number from a disk if you can find the product more cheaply, but Adobe does not sell LR upgrades via re-sellers; only the full version.
Very useful additional information - many thanks indeed
