Well.. it kinda makes sense to me when you consider that molds are normally taken on a flat surface, but when the boot is constructed it has ~7mm of pitch in it.
you also need to consider that if you take the molds with any sort of moderate ankle bent and you boots are cast with that shape, what happens when you do stand upright, or your leg is fully extended at the end of your strikes? There will be pressure on the achilles and heel and your foot will be pushed further forward in the boot.

Intuitively I would say that you should have your ankles only slightly bent when taking molds - not bolt upright, but certainly not in the skating position.
