Custom Post Meta fields have different markup

When adding custom post meta fields, I noticed the styling is different. This is due to the classes being added automatically. This happens when using the add_meta_box function.

I'll attach some screenshots of the differences between the meta boxes. I think it would be nice to make these match.
