I used to be in the same boat, till my brother showed me a German safety study that indicated the third row.Is it more convenient mounting the seat in the 3rd than 2nd row seats?
Also, I'd have thought the 2nd row is safer than 3rd in that in an emergency, you'd be able to escape with the child from the vehicle much quicker than if the child was in the 3rd row.
Furthermore, the 2nd row being in the .middle of the car, seems to provide more space for cabin protection of occupants than the 3rd row, which is much closer to the rear, fuel tank etc.
Personally, I'd rather use the 2nd than 3rd row seats for practical safety reasons.

It’s not the safest area. 2nd row is.As it’s the safest location for kids in my opinion.
Why confusing? Third row is not for child seats. Volvo engineers are making a point of this, actually, they have been a similar point since 2002...Volvo is also missing the isofix points in the third row and center seat in the second row. Which is again confusing.
