To be clear, it is technically possible to address reach issues by moving the saddle. But a lot of other aspects of the fit are dependent on saddle position, so you're altering the entire fit by doing it. Put another way, it's an approach to fitting that causes you to lose control over the sort of fit that you're aiming for.

It's just a terrible order of operations, like buying a toaster and then searching for a house with a kitchen that matches it. It's technically doable, but you're making things harder on yourself and you're going to have a harder time coming to a satisfactory outcome.
