There is no such thing as “position of point in a different buffer”.

Or, rather, there is, but there is not one. For every window that is
showing the buffer, there is that window’s own position of point. But
if a buffer is not shown in any buffer, then it still has one position
of point.

Therefore, if you are trying to change the position of point in a
different buffer that is shown in a window, do it by selecting that
window, not by switching to that buffer in your window.
