Re: 18-55mm lenses

I meant "front focusing" in sense front element is used to focus, as I heard phrase "front focusing Tessar" before. These older 18-55 are curious in a sense that they can be used as a 16 mm lens on a mirrorless body with shorter than usual lens adapter.

Perhaps you don't literally mean the front element but rather a lens group forward of the aperture stop.
For example (Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR):

G3 is in front of the Aperture Stop (S).

I doubt this has anything to do with the ability to use the lens in the way you describe.
