The ones that fit in the plate area would be better as the perspective will be best.
A camera mounted higher may miss low level obstructions.

I'm getting one of these at some point

Replaces a number plate light so there's no need to drill anything

The only problem with those that fit in the number plate area is the wireing is going to have to travel a long way up to the top of the tail gate, into the headlining and back down to connect to the power to the reversing lights and on to the monitor.

I fitted one in the lower part of the rear bumper and took the wires up into the rear quarter panel to avoid all that on the Focus Estate I used to own.
