Do Ikea Expedit shelves need wall mounting?

I have purchased four Expedite shelves from Ikea for my library. They all come with a wall mount fixture. The problem is I have baseboard so the shelves don't sit against the wall. I have also stacked two shelves on top of each other. They sort of look like these: So back to my question: Are they safe without being mounted to the wall or do I need to remove my baseboards and mount the shelves? I can mount the second shelves (the ones stacked above) because they rest against the wall. But do I really need to? I had regular shelves from Staples and they were fine i.e. they didn't tip over.
