Hm, I think you're saying the mark was set at the beginning of the
message body.  I don't think this is on by default nowadays or if it
ever was (I have used both SC and TC in addition to the default Gnus
citations), and I couldn't find a setting that does it, but it should be
easy to write a function and add it to the appropriate hook that does:

1) (message-goto-body)
2) set mark
