Why would you want to look into the grad structure, or in the layout.pos? I guess the most straightforward would be to ask one of the authors of said paper why they chose the parameters.
Very generally, I think that the coordinates were chosen based on knowledge with respect to the coordinate system. Indeed, the negative x-axis points to the back, and a y-coordinate of 0 represents the midline.

Yes, that's correct.
