Consider the traditional view of the current and voltage relative to ground at each point on the antenna as a sine/cosine waveform starting at the antenna feedpoint.
Voltage is not absolute; it is always measured relative to something else. So you can pick any arbitrary point to call "zero".
If you decide to call the voltage at the feedpoint zero, then at which exact point in the waveform from the transmitter this happens to be makes no difference. A quarter wavelength out, voltage (relative to the feedpoint) will be at a maximum and current at a minimum; the antenna will present a purely resistive load, which is the definition of antenna resonance (though it won't necessarily be perfectly matched to a 50 ohm feedline - an antenna at resonance and a 1:1 SWR to a particular feedline impedance are two completely different things!).
If we needed to consider the feedline, then we would also need to consider any distance the signals have travelled inside the transmitter as well. Especially in UHF and up, these distances can potentially be significant fractions of a wavelength or more. So we should be thankful that we only need to concern ourselves with the voltage differences along the length of the antenna proper.
The antenna mount itself generally only provides a sturdy electrical connection from the feedline to the antenna. You'll get the same results if you splice the feedline and simply let it continue in two directions from the feedpoint (barring differences in ground-plane coupling).
