Pinky pad anchor vs "textbook" RDT form anchor

Greetings, watching primer, the wrist reference section, the pinky pad anchor is talked about a lot there. Is the pinky pad anchor that players like Andy Wood, Al Di Meola and Paul Gilbert use, just a slightly flatter position than the textbook RDT form where the entire side of the palm is in contact? What are the advantages of one vs the other, if they both can achieve DBX? Does it change the degree of edge picking and slant and how we achieve it vs what’s shown in Primer wrist motion tutorials?

This is a great question - would love to here any thoughts anyone has on this
