With the new /execute command syntax, the subcommand at should change the command's position, rotation, and dimension to the targets specified. However only the position and dimension are set; one must use /execute as to set the rotation, which does not line up with behavior in Java Edition.
In Java Edition, /execute as solely changes the targets executing the command and it creates a new command stack for each target. Position, rotation, and dimension are not inherited from a target this way.

→ The particle emits relative to the armor stand's position, but inherits your rotation.
→ The particle emits relative to your position, but inherits the armor stand's rotation.
