It does.
It's a mainly a thought experiment.

But from the limited tilt I can get with a unicycle seat, I haven't noticed much difference, except in how much my thighs rub against the fork crown.

If you notice any difference, it must be because you are taking extra weight with your legs. So at the extreme, if a seat was completely vertical with respect to the frame, someone would have to stand on the pedals in order to ride. But that means it's no longer a seat- it's an ultimate wheel with handlebars.
