I believe what he's saying is that SOMEHOW you relate the person to what
they are mounted upon--"POS_MOUNTED" can't tell the MUD who they're mounted
on.  If there is a pointer on the char_data structure called "mount" (struct
char_data *mount), you can check to see if ch->mount is not NULL...  if it
isn't NULL, then they're mounted.  In any case, you have to have more there
than the fact they're mounted as a position, so you have to make use of that
extra information.
