Default Partitions layout: Who is right?

Good morning everybody!

Recently I've moved away from Arch Linux [It died after an update ;-) ] in favor of FreeBSD on my desktop. As in my habit, I've become interested into speeding up stuff

When reading "man tuning", I have found a following passage:

When using bsdlabel(8) or sysinstall(8) to lay out your file systems on a
hard disk it is important to remember that hard drives can transfer data
much more quickly from outer tracks than they can from inner tracks.
On the other hand, I remember advice from an Arch wiki:

The partition layout can influence the system's performance. Sectors at the beginning of the drive (closer to the center of the disk) are faster than those at the end.


Who is right?

I'm pretty lame in physics... If anyone would be so nice to explain it for me in a trivial way, I'll be very grateful
