After reading (info "(emacs) Marking Objects") and doing some tests, I
wonder why 'mark-paragraph' does not behave like 'mark-word' and
'mark-sexp' when the mark is located before point.  In that situation
'mark-word' and 'mark-sexp' move the mark backwards to select an
earlier element (which I think is TRT), but 'mark-paragraph' moves the
mark forward instead (like when the mark is after point).

Could this inconsistency be fixed?

TIA
