Yes you are correct the ball does have to stay in the relief area.

Isn’t the third rule that the ball has to stop in the relief area, it can’t roll out of it?

Yes, as diagrams in the Rules of Golf will show, you do not have to be standing up when dropping.  The ball just needs to be dropped from a height at which your knee is positioned if standing straight up.

During Matt’s demo of rule 14.3, he states that the ball must be dropped from knee length from a “Standing ” position.  In the slide which outlines the 3 main rules to 14.3, it does not state the standing position. In some tournaments this year, I have seen some tall players take a crotched position still dropping from a knee height. Is this allowable?
