At the long end of the focal lenght the DOF is the shallowest.
There is less in focus point so it is to lock on.

This was something advised by early zoom lens manufacturers. One
tips in my Vivitar Series 1 70-210 zoom's manual was to focus at
210 and then zoom out to compose.

True, but most zooms dont have constant focus - it seems the DA lenses do which is helpful.
