Not contradicting you, but if that’s the case, then it’s a bad idea to use as a tiedown, wouldn’t y’all think?

Possibly...I don't have this, just provided a saved photo.

Guess it would depend on the direction the tie downs were directed. Seems to me it would not be the same stress as pulling forward on it, which is PULLING directly on those 2 large bolts in on each side at the bottom of the engine. Personally, I use 4 axle straps: 1 short one around each side of the front axle, and a longer axle strap around each rear wheel, all then secured with 2" wide straps.
