Looks as if our definition of "minimal bounding rectangle" in our documentation is not clear enough ...

The MBRs edges are always parallel to the coordinate systems axes,
so the MBR for Polygon((0 5,5 10,7 8,2 3,0 5)) it spans from Point(0 3) to Point (7 10) and the one for Polygon((2 3,7 8,9 6,4 1,2 3)) spans from Point(2 1) to Point (9 8) and so both MBRs contain Point(3 6).
