Sketch Profile Location For Sweep Path?

I watched a few videos on OS's sweep feature and thought I saw it emphasized that the sketch profile for the shape of the sweep needed to be 'coincidental' or 'pierced' with the sweep path, even to the extent of creating a new plane point if needed, 'use' the point from the path and create the sweep profile on that new plane. As in this vid -

It seems that is not entirely true, or actually not true at all. A bit confused by this discovery and was wondering is this a new feature? Or was it always intended to work this way? And what is the upside/downside using either technique.
