I have one that can be moved from front to back but I keep it to the front as it allows me to use the longest stroke.
I do agree that the piece is supported better with the bar to the back of the stock but if you use the clamp to keep the piece up against the large miter bar, it holds it in place.

Some format saws have a pneumatic clamp which I wish mine had.

Do you have a butt bar on you saw?

Yes, but it’s awkward to use. I need to make up something on my own. I have not had any problems just pushing down with my hands to hold it down but if I feed too fast, the blade can kind of push back on my work but that was early on before getting the feel of the saw.
