Change the "stock box point" dropdown option to "selected point", then you can pick any point you like.

Stock box point is good for rectangular stock, it puts points on each corners and in the middle that you can easily pick, but this is not your case here.

tried that before, it then repositions the billet incorrectly!

It has nothing to do with moving geometry... hmmm, well, we don't have your file so hard to try.  I have never seen Fusion moving geometry based on how you pick the origin though... 🤔

Hi, I created a simple cube and got the same issue but it seems there is a simple solution to the problem. Just check the box that says "select axis" and the stock position will be correct. If that doesn't help you need to create a construction axis/ sketchline in the center of the part and select that.
