The only variables are the degree of knee, hip and lumbar flexion
It feels like it goes further in front of you, because you're breaking more at the knees which allows you to push your hips further back. Obviously you can't actually hold the bar in front of you with any reasonable weight.
And yeah, obviously those are the only variables. Those are the only joints that can vary.
