I think you've got this the wrong way around.
Short femurs mean you don't have to sit back as much for the same depth. Even though charly is doing low bar, he still manages to stay relatively upright because his shorter femurs mean his knees don't need to come as far forward and his hips don't need to shoot back as much as someone with long femurs.
put 3 pencils together and change the lengths around and you'll see what I mean.
