Standing at attention?

About half the time that I have my parent sims try to teach their toddler sims to walk, they step back and take this position.

It seems to be a default soft reset pose, and is probably something that the animators start with when they create motions for the game.  It looks like the animator who made the “teach to walk” animations didn’t clean up his work properly before exporting it to the game.  So I’d call this a bug because sims are not generally supposed to take this pose during gameplay.
