I think the blade/wood fiber geometry is determined by the cut itself (miter versus cross-cut) not by how you effect that cut on the saw. The only difference I see between making the cut with the workpiece flat and the saw tilted to bevel, versus making the cut with the board upright and the saw rotated to miter is that in the former case gravity wants to pull the saw head off the desired cut plane somewhat. Perhaps that is enough to cause trouble, I do find myself preferring to keep the blade vertical whenever I can.
