Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that a 'position light' is a modern-day shunt signal. A controlled signal is one from which routes are set manually (unlike an automatic signal).

A position light associated with a main stop signal is the two diagonal white lights that can be displayed on certain controlled signals.

They basically mean that when illuminated the signal can be passed at danger being prepared to stop short of any obstruction.

Its usual to find them giving entry into sidings or where permissive moves are necessary.
