Most western adults cannot place their heels flat on the ground when squatting because of shortened Achilles tendons largely caused by habitually:

sitting on chairs or seats
wearing shoes with heels (especially high heels)

For this reason the squatting position is usually not sustainable for them for more than a few minutes as heels-up squatting is a less stable position than heels-down squatting.
