The lugs exist to make installation easier/faster. If utilizing them produces the desired arrow straight grout joint width, well, that's super.

My first thought would be to screw it to the top plate, but if you only have 1.5" (or less if the drywall is on the ceiling) there the screw will probably be too close to the edge of the Durock and...
