I would be surprised if a wrap around rest would reach the front hole position. My understanding for using the rear mounting is to reduce effects of torque as it is directly above the bow pivot point in the grip. The only world class archer I know who shoots/has shot from the front button position is Chang Hyejin.
With her form as word No.1 in 2018 she can probably shot from either and still win. Her rest is moved forward too as you would expect. Given most button holes are around 15mm apart you can move the button and leave the rest in place. There is no law against it, but most people would not recommend it, but there is nothing wrong with trying it and seeing how you get on.
I once managed to put the button in the front hole when the rest was set at the back hole. I spent the entire (indoor) session wondering why all my arrows were not going (roughly) high and left and not where they went the previous week. Had people check my form, set up etc. No one noticed the button in the wrong place until the “Duh” moment as I took the bow down at the end.
Does everyone take the button out of the riser at the end of a session? I leave the button in as it is the only thread on the riser that is not bushed. It does cause a problem with riser sleeves and bow bags with it sticking out awkwardly.
