While my inseam is little more than 30", I set my tall than stock RM seat in the highest position. Doing so puts me on the balls of my feet when stopping but gives me the most room when underway. Gotta watch out for the loose stuff when coming to a stop or backing up though!

"front middle rear lowest" is not talking about the rear seat but the front and rear of the front seat. This helps to keep the family jewels away from the petrol (gas) tank.

I customized the slant and height of my front seat to fit my body size. I used a heavy hammer and pipe wrench to tweak the rear loop position and I added shims in front. (my cushion is customized for me, too)

using a Corbin seat - the low close model if I remember correctly.

I have to add I have the Heli bar risers as well. I think this goes hand in hand with seat position. I never knew how much more comfortable my seat would be with a slight hand position change.
