No. It is like sitting in a chair with your feet in FRONT of you. Thus the term feet forward.
All mid controls, floor boards and forward controls are FEET FORWARD.

A standard riding position is one where your feet are beneath you (like sitting on a bar stool) Bikes like the TU250 and Bonneville you mentioned. Also like the Dual Sports that you in your misguided and ignorant way called "mid controls".

Follow the link I posted and look up the bikes for yourself. Look at the leg possision.

Feet Under:

Bar stool/standard. Dirtbikes, Dual Sports, Adventure bikes, Bonneville, UJM's ...

Feet Forward:

Chair/Mids Gold Wing, FXDB, FXDC,

Relaxed/footboard FLD, FLSTC, V-star, Vulcan Classic

Slouch on couch/forward, Raider S, FXDWG, FXDF '09'+, Vucan Custom...

You are confusing "forward controls" with "feet forward" Feet forward simply means that your feet are in front of you (not under you) and it comes in various degrees.

Super Sport bikes have "Rear Sets"
“Watch out for everything bigger than you, they have the "right of weight"
