Does matter...almost can't see either one! I'm pretty sure that Metric 0402 is a synonym for Higgs-Boson particle.

You're probably referring to Metric 0402s?
There can be some confusion between Imperial and Metric dimensions.
An Imperial 0402 can be seen.
A Metric 0402 is the size of a mustard seed, or smaller.

An Imperial 0402 is the equivalent of a Metric 1005.
