Please refer to the spec again.  It is not *necessary* for the figure
to be movable.  It is, however, common for it to be so.

The definition of <figure> is:
"The figure element represents some flow content, optionally with a
caption, that is self-contained and is typically referenced as a
single unit from the main flow of the document."

The bit about it being movable is in the next paragraph, discussing
what it can possibly be used for.
