They use forward rotation to work.

E-brake maybe but using parking-brake to hold the load then put tranny in P for years. The older trucks I've owned have lost parking-brake functionality as the cables rust up, you know that when the brake won't hold in REV or FWD. Easy to check. My parking brake holds back my 3/4 ton just fine. Saves the parking pawls from the shock of going from P to D to.
