If you try to strap the mattress to the sides while it is unfolded and set up the side straps don't reach so if would only make sence that when you fold the mattress on half bingo they line right up, so if they told you those side straps are there to stop the bed from moving I think there lying to ya, I could be wrong but we looked at a lot of hybrids before we bought ours and they are all stored the same way with matresses attached to bunk doors folded in half.

The top straps hold the bed from sliding off or down while sleeping, I think that's what they are trying to tell you

So I snapped the mattresses after I folded up the beds. Now I will see what happens when I unfold them. I did not strap them in before hand because I am a creature of habit. I was in my routine and forgot. What I found interesting is the snaps on the straps at the top of the mattress are about 3 inches apart. The snaps on the bed are between 1 and 2 inches. Either these are not the right mattresses or there was a design flaw. It does not matter though. If the mattress falls out I probably will be in it. I am more worried about falling out without the mattress.

Don't snap at all, in fact I rotated my front and side mattress 180d so the short half folds in toward the bunk. Then I pull the tent out as much as possible and drape it over the mattress then close the curtains. I find this hold the mattress in tighter/ flatter toward the door and looks great from the inside when we don't open the bunks. Also the mattresses stay locked in while traveling. The down side is you have to pull the mattress out a little more to get the bar on top when you setup. The rear bunk I just leave the same.
