It can also happen when the bar is tugging you forward a bit - so when you pull under, you reach for the bar with your chest, which can have your whole body tilt, bringing the feet back a bit. This is what I would say is happening in the first video - he's not opening up quite enough and his weight stays off balance forward slightly throughout.
