If you look at your collet, you can see the jaws that do the actual clamping. As long as the bit is fully engaged in those jaws the bit is deep enough – at least for the consideration of the collet clamping the bit.

Whenever possible, the guideline you shared is preferred. You want the forces of cutting as close to the collet as possible.
