When selection is made and then drop down button pressed, position list at selection and have the selcted item with sel emphasis.

This seems difficult to do especially given works but filing for consideration.

Taken from IBM Design Leadership recommendations.

Summary: ComboBox: highlight current item in drop downComboBox: open drop down positioned at current item

Nope, it's different. The idea is that, for example, if the input box says "California" and then you press the button to open the drop, the drop down will display w/all 50 states but it will scroll so that California is in the middle of the displayed portion of the drop down list, and the current drop down item is California (in the sense that pressing the down arrow key will move to Colorado, and pressing the up arrow key will move to "Armed Forces the Americas")

I don't think this request is very useful for the current ComboBox/FilteringSelect? that takes free-form input and searches from a datastore. Presumably, the user is clicking on the dropdown button in order to change the value. The current value is probably not related to the values just above and below (it's unlikely that the user wants to change California to Colorado). This request is probably tied to a requirement for the often-requested and purely inline select widget for which values are sometimes related like:

See also #14148. The example is how a date drop down starts on the current year (which seems like a reasonable request). Again though, I don't know how to implement it. Maybe it's more feasible with the Select widget.
