I was hoping that you know and can quickly explain the reason.

Moving _before_ @item is not an option. For example, consider

- This is a long list item, and we want to put an anchor <<<here>>>, in the 
middle of the line.

The anchor does not belong to item itself, it is linking to a specific
place in the text.

AFAIU, it is not. See the above example.

Does it mean that something like

@item This is
a single paragraph inside item.

is always safe?
