Default Unusual Question

In the book it is mentioned that some people are able to achieve the correct starting position with the bar closer to the shin than the balls of the feet. I suspect I may be proportioned this way. I videoed pulls with both set ups and to my eyes there does not seem to be much difference, am I correct? Also feel free to point out any errors besides the bar start position as well.

Over mid foot.

Over toes.

The camera stopped recording at the end of the pull but it should be enough to get a decent comparison.
