Road bike STA is optimized for riding on flat land. MTB STA should be optimized for climbing (and have a steeper STA).  All of the seat position photos above only show the rider on flat land. Seating position should factor in uphill grade and the argument could be made that attack position should factor in downhill grade. I would rather prioritize performance and comfort when climbing where effort is higher vs flat land. There is a great youtube video on this. Just turn on the captions unless you speak italian.
