It depends on the Bow/cam system. Some I set level and others slightly above.

It's just a starting point before you tune anyway

As mentioned , it's just a starting point, paper tuning will tell you where the nocking point wants to be, set nocking point first then correct horizontal tears.

Default Good advice

Different on most bows.

Most manufactuers give you a strating center shot and knocking point for most the bows based on arrow centered with berger hole.

Some bows for me shoot and tune better close to risor shelf.
