Just for completeness:

The original swiper and swiper-backward commands either always leave
point at the end of the match (by default), or always at the start
(after customising swiper-goto-start-of-match), regardless of direction.

Later came swiper-isearch and swiper-isearch-backward, for handling
multiple matches per line.  AFAICT the former always leaves point at the
end, and the latter always at the start.

AFAIK neither of these interfaces was originally designed with a way of
customising where to leave point in mind; it was an afterthought, and
naturally there are open bug reports about their behaviour.
