18.104.22.168, paragraph 3, says "The types streampos and wstreampos may be different if the implementation supports no shift encoding in narrow-oriented iostreams but supports one or more shift encodings in wide-oriented streams".
That's wrong: the two are the same type. The <iosfwd> summary in 27.2 says that streampos and wstreampos are, respectively, synonyms for fpos<char_traits<char>::state_type> and fpos<char_traits<wchar_t>::state_type>, and, flipping back to clause 21, we see in 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 that char_traits<char>::state_type and char_traits<wchar_t>::state_type must both be mbstate_t.
Remove the sentence in 188.8.131.52 [char.traits.specializations.wchar.t] paragraph 3 which begins "The types streampos and wstreampos may be different..." .
