4-10 does not ever state it. (definition of closely guarded)

4-23 defines guarding and tell you what needs to have happen to establish initial legal guarding position (both feet on the floor and guard's torso facing opponent)

Once intial legal guarding position is established the guard is not required to continue facing the opponent, etc....

The guard however must have inbounds status to maintain guarding 4-23-3

MAybe this is semantics on this but ...
