Hoarding please clarify the about one square foam tile; it is vague

Originally, we understood that a robot could hold three goals and it would not be hoarding. What if 'one' robot on an alliance team has 6 of the goals touching in the corner of a field to the side of their platform (2 foam squares) and has one goal touching the platform and their large robot of 17 1/2 inches was at a diagonal not moving (not carrying a goal) , is this not hoarding?
