The Placement of Punishment Kubbs

Am I correct in my understanding that a Punishment Kubb must be placed fully on the pitch, that it cannot go *on* the baseline?

The World Championship rules as well as the U.S. National Kubb Championship Rules states: "Punishment kubbs are collected by the defending team and placed anywhere on their half of the pitch provided that they are at least one baton-length from the king and at least one baton-length from any field marking pin."
It should be placed at least 50% in bound.
Kubb on!

Punishment kubbs can go "on" the baseline, but they remain field kubbs. Teams will normally add some grass to the top of the kubb to denote it is a field kubb. This kubb needs to be hit first, just like any other field kubb.

You can place a punishment kubb on your side of the half, and if you want, on any line (baseline, sideline, centerline) as long it's 50% on the line, and at least 1 baton length away from a field marking pin, and the king.

Allowing the punishment kubb to be placed on the baseline, sideline, or centerline, where is this stated in the rules? Are the World Championship Rules the same?

Interesting. It is not specifically stated, but I expect a minor change would get the point across (at least in the US National Championship ruleset v3.0.

Current:
If a field kubb that was thrown twice has come to rest in such a way that it cannot be raised in bounds then it becomes a punishment kubb. Punishment kubbs are collected by the defending team and placed anywhere on their half of the pitch provided that they are at least one baton-length (15cm) from the king and at least one baton-length from any field marking pin.
