PostgreSQL - all foreign keys are integer instead of bigints

Hi, when using PostgreSQL as the database, SilverStripe is generating integer foreign key data-types for all types of foreign keys, whereas the primary keys are bigints.

Is there a setting to fix this, or am I going to have to write SQL to change the data-types? Are there any other unforseen issues this could cause (once I've manually fixed the data-types) - e.g. will the SilverStripe data model still work ok - does it worry about the size of an integer ?
